A forest of dead links on the Internet?

So you should probably look at your end. However, it is possible that such problems appear for a few minutes. If it cntinues, maybe you should contact your ISP.

They work for me. (for your 2nd and last link I had to remove a space before Safety and ssw respectively, then they worked too).
I've had what you describe a few times, and it's usually enough to click on the refresh button in the browser.
Or you might try to access the pages by clicking on the cache copy link, rather than the link itself.
Keep playing around with your firewall settings, it might be a firewall problem (I have ZoneAlarm, set on Medium for ad blocking and cookie control)

| Did you try to change ISP lately? || Apr 1, 2004 |
Something like this happened to me once. When I bought a new computer I used .msn for a little while and then I went to a different ISP and unsubscribed from msn and hotmail. After I set up a new connection and defaults in Outlook Express I had a feeling that I did personally offend Mr. Bill:) Nothing worked normally. First he would not allow me to use his outgoing server, I could not send any messages. None of the sites worked as well! I ended up running the repair mode from the system recovery CD. After that everything was fine with the new settings.

| Thanks everyone || Apr 1, 2004 |
Well, I changed my security settings in my Microsoft Internet Explorer to medium-low and now I can visit all the sites except the EMIRE site. I don't think my Norton anti-virus program includes a firewall, but I'll check that too. Thanks for helping me by checking the links!

No problem out here in the wild west. Be sure to remove the extra space from #2 and #5, as Michele noted.
