    Hello,
    Try adding this site to your trusted sites zone in IE. Don't uninstall sp2 it's a big leap forward in security for windows. You can check out articles dealing with various configs of sp2 and trouble shooters at pcworld.com and pcmag.com. Not one mag I subscribe to has said it isn't worth the trouble. I have problems viewing certain images on the web but that was after some jerk created a trojan that appears in these types of images other than that I have been very please with its performance. I don't think norton is keeping you out but for more on norton visit a thread on this site under general discussion NORTON WON'T TURN ON. There has been some discussion there regarding norton so I won't have to repeat myself. The other option is to install firefox and use it as an alternate browser and see if you can get to that site. Hope it helps.
