I use LastPass password manager. Works great and no trouble with it. I have over 200 logins in it. I have clicked on a great number of them over the past two days and no problems.
I just purchased a medical device from RESPeRATE. I registered with the forum so I could interact with others who are using it. I can login just fine, I can click on the specific forum I want to be in and that opens, but when I try to click on a post that's been made, or to "Start a new topic" I am stopped cold. I have tried 4 browsers and tho the messages are different in each, the bottom line is it won't let me in. Please see the screenshots and note the error code given on the Chrome browser.
I have tried to make the connection on a Gateway laptop I have which has Win XP on it. I tried Firefox and IE. Same result.
What these two computers have in common is Avast Internet Security 7, and the wireless modem I connect through.
I tried restarting in Safe Mode with networking. Same thing happened. I tried a clean boot and again, same result. I also took the chance of just shutting down all of the shields on Avast for 10 minutes while in normal mode and same result.
I called my ISP, who is just certain it has nothing to do with them or their modem, naturally. I asked him if resetting the unit might help and he said it could and told me all I had to do was pull the plug from the back of the modem, wait 20 seconds and plug it back in. That didn't help either, but I thought when you did this you were supposed to completely disconnect both your computer and the modem from electricity, wait for several minutes and then plug first the computer and then the modem back in.
Does anyone have any possible solution or has anyone out there ever heard of this before? Does that error message on the bottom of the Chrome page give any clues? I'm at my witt's end. My computer is running good and there is not another site with which I have had any problem. I just can't read a post or make one at this forum.resperate.com. I have had several people in Avast tell me they went and opened these posts with no problem, and also the ISP guy I talked to. I used that site called "Down For Everyone Or Just Me?" and it said it's just me.
