    dear friend,

    There are some possible reasons behind this problem-

    1. Antivirus issue- You are using some kind of antivirus software which is blocking your internet access.

    Solution- Disable all kind of protective software keeping only internet security software active. If this doesn't work then check for the other faults. But don't disable the online security software. Because if this is blocking any webpage then that webpage must have infected program which can damage your computer.

    2. Firewall issue- You are running any personal firewall software which also blocking your network access.

    Solution- Turn Off windows & all kind of personal firewall while accessing internet.

    3. Missing/Damaged internet explorer files & settings- If there is any corruption in internet explorer then webpages will not be load & the session will expired before loading.

    Solution- Reset the Inter explorer settings. Launch the internet explorer. Go to Tools > Internet option > Advanced tab. Then click on the Reset option & click on Apply+OK. You can also delete all the history & cache file. Now restart your internet explorer & check for the problem.

    4. Host file corrupted/damaged or the server error. You can't do anything for that. It is totally external matter & out of your control.

    If nothing works then perform a clean boot in your PC.
