Hi Elizabeth so glad i helped someone else. But i would have thought as you have a far more updated comp and system than me, you shouldnt have any problems but it just goes to show.Sorry i dont know the answer to your problem but at least you know you can go through firefox.

As for IE10 i didnt know there was one lol .cant keep up with all these newer versions must be getting set in my ways i think!

Thank you for starting this - I have just acquired Windows 7, which has IE10 but it wouldn't let me sign in to T--co, though no problems with other sites. When I saw your experience l tried to access it via Firefox land it worked! (I previously had XP with IE7, got T--co with no problems)

Just to let you know ,we decided to update to IE9 but when my son try to download it, it wouldnt work with Windows XP. So thats a real nuisance.

Thought i would put this info on as others might find it useful.

As time goes on, we will probably have to buy a new comp with windows 7 or whatever the latest one is.

Thanks all for you help. I have found out the problem and thought I would tell you incase anyone else has the same problem.
My son suggested I try accessing the sight from Mozilla Firefox as i use IE. I did this and it worked. It would appear my IE8 is out of date and I need IE9. However, my son and husband dont like changes so were not keen to download the newest version!

Strangest thing is though, this only affects and no other site I visit!

However problem solved.
Thanks for you suggestions.
Have a nice day.

Hi Florence

I think there's something wrong with Java.

Someone who is more computer savvy will probably know........ PorkiePie? RolloTheRed?

Please does anyone know why after 3 years, i suddeny cant access one of my fav sites. I use every night, but today i get to the site and when i click on a game to play a message in the bottom left of screen says error/java script.

I have emptied cookies/cache deleted browsing history. I have also checked and java is enabled.

Does anyone have any other thoughts or suggestions, why i suddenly cant get on?
