If I shut my computer completely down it will access the site on startup. If I open anything else it goes back to "Cannot Access the site".

Just a stab here:

Shutting down and restarting clears out certain files left over by browsing sessions. As we browse from there, those same files reappear.

Options (Admin will have others) to consider:

- Run ccleaner to clean up temporary files
- If you know how, build this .bat file and save it to the Desktop:
taskkill /f /im iexplore.exe
taskkill /f /im firefox.exe
taskkill /f /im chrome.exe
taskkill /f /im MicrosoftEdge.exe
taskkill /f /im MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe
RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 4351
cd C:\Program Files\CCleaner
ccleaner64 /auto

Chrome is especially good at running background processes even after we close out the browser.


Another trick is to remove/reinstall browser extensions. Remove them; restart the browser; see how that goes.

Finally: Internet Explorer is obsolete and a serious security hazard. Microsoft has replaced it with Edge and they recommend using that instead.

Edge is not a good browser and Microsoft is backing off on it in favour of Chrome.

I use Firefox. There are other browsers that fade off into the fringe like Opera, Chrome Canary, Arora, Pale Moon, etc.

Windows 10 and the newest version of Firefox with noscript here, and the NGF website is definitely FUBARed.
