Up until recently, I could get on the forum from home. I can not now and only at work. Any ideas? When I type in http://www.farmallcub.com it goes to ask.com and when I go to ralphs website and then click on farmallcub.com from his it still does not allow me to enter.

Hi Dan,

Two things come to mind. One is the DNS server on your home machine is messed up. A quick check would be to open a command prompt (easy way is to do, Start - Run, then type "cmd" . That should get you a command prompt, then type "nslookup http://www.farmallcub.com" you should get something back like this:

Server: dns-cac-lb-01.ohiordc.rr.com
Address: 65.24.7.3

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: http://www.farmallcub.com
Address: 64.92.112.72

The server in your case will be different than mine, but you should get the same answer for the Address 64.92.112.72

The other problem could be something nasty has modified your HOSTS file. Can you get to anywhere on your home machine? Not like there is anywhere else than "farmallcub.com" anyway. :lol:

Please let me know what you get and we can fix from there.

But type the command with out the parenthesis.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

you might also try clearing your cache and history. I have seen them get corrupted.

Couple of questions.
  • Do you have a Router? If so which one? Which model?
  • Do you have a Firewall? Such as a software based Firewall in addition to the Windows Firewall and the Firewall in your Router if you have one?
  • Do you have an Anti-Virus and Firewall Suite such as System Mechanic 7 Professional or Norton 360 - I really don't like Norton but many do..... :roll:
  • Do you have Spy-Bot Search & Destroyinstalled and Tea Timer running?
  • Do you have Ad-Aware installed? Do you also have the add-ons that disables Windows Messaging

Most likely what you have is a bot or a trojan or a worm that is re-routing your IP request for http://www.farmallcub.com. Your Firewall may also be restricting access and you may have to investigate a bit deeper. If your firewall is blocking it, try unblocking or removing the entry entirely. If that does not work, you will have to go in and allow it by adding the correct IP address of http://www.farmallcub.com (use the ping command to determine the correct DNS and IP ..)

Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 127ms, Maximum = 129ms, Average = 128ms


You can try clearing your cache and history files, but that may or may not work. Usually it doesn't when you have that problem. You should be running your Anti-Virus on a 48 hour cycle and running Ad-Aware SE and Spy-Bot at least 2-3 times per week. They run in the background and do catch just about 90 % of bots and other tracking programs as well as loggers, re-directors/forwarders and other stuff. Even Windows Defender is useful when run in concert with other programs.

Guys-

I did the pin thing and the dns command things. The problem is not solved. I can visit evry site in the world it seems but farmallcub. I have adaware,spybot, and avg. They are the standard free versions with no add ons. When I did the ping thing, it came back the same message as yours Rudi except in one spot it said something like "timed out". the ping speeds were not as fast as yours either.

Dan - contact your internet provider and discuss it with them. I'm sure they can walk you through a fix.
