      If you've installed Mcafee with the Sky Broadband. right click the Mcafee icon in your system tray and go to the privacy service menu then to manage users, select the default(admin) account an click edit.. You should see a cookies option in there.. Make sure its marked to Accept all cookies.

      Hi Folks,

      Thanks for your replies. It's not a local computer problem as it doesn't work across 4 different machines - 2 macs and 2 PC's so it would point to a router issue - however there is nothing on the router that would stop it accessing the address.

      I'll try using a Proxy.

      Update!

      A router reboot has finally fixed this - which is odd as I had rebooted it on several occasions over the last few weeks anyway.
