    domain and email blocked


    Hi guys

    I have my company email address which for some reason last week stopped working (can't connect to the server) on this laptop. My computer guy was at at a loss as all the settings were correct as nothing had been changed. He suggested try thunderbird, which also times out. we also tried the webmail, same thing and even the company website is blocked. he tested it from his end and everything is fine (he's remote not a company guy) changed password, nope same thing. turned off firewall, nothing changed. removed malwarebytes etc same.

    seems everything that has 'acdirecttenerife.com' on it is blocked.?? how can this be???

    on my phone everything works so its a local to this laptop issue

    happy to provide further info if required but desperate to get back as quotes are piling up and i don't know what to check.

    The website works on my end.

    (It needs updating though. At the bottom it says: Copyright Total Climate Control SL 2010. You should notify the webmaster to update that number to 2018.)

    Try this:
    Firefox and other browsers cant load websites | Firefox Help
    (Has nothing to do with FireFox. It's an attempt at a fix for your local computer.)

    Hey richardbarlett,
    Long shot, but have you checked your hosts file ...

    1. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
    2. Right click on hosts > open with notepad
    3. Make sure it doesn't have any reference to that site (0.0.0.0 acdirecttenerife.com)
    4. This is what a default hosts file looks like ...

    Code:
    # Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
    #
    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    #      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
    #       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host
    
    # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
    #    127.0.0.1       localhost
    #    ::1             localhost

    Hmh... Check out this site:
    Windows: Cannot Connect to Certain Web Sites

    Go through the steps. (It includes the DNS Flushing. It also includes the Hosts file as stated right above my comment)
    But I see a reply below the article that the TCP thing worked for one guy. Try that one out.

    Might I suggest you run these four resets

    Run the following four bolded commands. Use a Command Prompt(admin) or Powershell(admin)

    Do not key in info in brackets, there for your information.

    ipconfig /flushdns (Clear the dns cache)
    nbtstat -RR (release and refresh NetBIOS names)
    netsh int ip reset (reset ip settings)
    netsh winsock reset (Reset Winsock Catalog)
