I have a user who cannot seem to be able to access the above mentioned sites.
Everyone else can from their PC, but she cannot. She can access any other

Yesterday she ran a scan and found adware istbar along with a mytob virus
which were removed as per Symantec's instructions. I have since run a full
NAV scan, cleared cache and temporary iE files. I have also run MS
antispyware, without any joy.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Three things to try:

1. Clear your TIF and History completely:

2. Check the user account's Cookies folder and delete any cookies that
relate to the sites in question.

3. Check the Hosts file as per this article:

There were entries in the hosts file, which I have removed and all is working

Many thanks for your help
