I'm having a strange software problem tonight. When I tried to open several blogs, including Volokh, Instapundit, and Althouse, I got an error message that Internet Explorer was unable to load the page. When I tried loading the same pages from caches after Google searches, most of these wouldn't load either. Strangely, I was able to visit many other sites on the internet, including new ones I had never visited before.
I tried several things that didn't work:
2. Installed and ran Spybot
3. Downloaded IE 7 and rebooted.
4. Cleaned out temp files and history in IE 7.
5. Added Volokh.com to trusted sites in IE 7.
The only thing that works is to use Firefox. I was able to visit all 3 blogs with no problem, and I am using Firefox to post this.
Is anyone else having the same problem? I note that some other blogs were having problems earlier today, but these seemed related to Blogger.
Does anyone know what's going on with Internet Explorer and some blogs? Or is it just me?
UPDATE: Searching on the web, it appears that others are having the same problem. The suggested solution seems drastic, even if I knew how to do it: remove Sitemeter.
2D UPDATE: Sitemeter has been removed. Problem solved, at least for now.
