IE unable to display website.

Hello, I purchased a new laptop last night and with windows 7, everything is working great except I am unable to connect to a specific website that I use at work everyday ( I have one other laptop and one desktop and both of them access it fine. I am sure it is a setting that I am missing. I have been through every trouble shooter there is, no repairs found. I have performed many steps outlined in these forums that I could, no change. I unistalled IE9 and went back to IE8, No change- a co-worker thought that might help. I am pulling my hair out because I really bought this laptop to run that website. It did work for a few hours today but now it will not connect. I am pretty low on the computer savvy side so please bear with me. I hope someone can help and I apprectiate any help towards resolving this issue. Ryan


first thanks for providing a link to the website you are having trouble with.... this is a great help for us... actually redirects to


another domain! IE browsers have security settings which meant to prevent Phishing attacks... navigating to a site that then redirects to another site is one way for the bad guys to harvest login credentials....


If you are accessing from a Favorite shotcut or using it as one of your IE homepages you must use the direct location above, not http:/

Delete the favorite link or homepage setting and replace it with


Also there is a security zone setting controling meta redirects to sites in different security zones....


first enuser you are using the Default Security zone settings...

Tools>Internet Options>Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default"


second remove and/or  from your Trusted sites list... (web sites should work just as well in the (default) Internet Zone)

Security tab of Internet Options>Trusted Sites icon, 'Sites' button....


If is your web site (programmed by you) you should look at changing the way you are authenticating users with a third-party website... Other web browsers do not have the security that IE browsers do... but MSIE browsers are the most commonly used, particuarly by corporate users.
