    When using google for counts - use double quotes for usage counts for multiword terms and set "match type" to "exact" for all search volume lookups. Click here for more info

    try deleting cache/cookies/temp files. maybe that might help? also try resetting your IP (ipconfig /renew). Maybe another browser would help (Opera/Mozilla/NetScape)?

    www.proxify.com

    Does it work through there?

    I wouldn't recommend using Paypal through proxy though.

    ok, figured this one out.

    There is a file in system32, the hosts file that was modified. Paypal was listed as localhost within that file. All I needed to do was delete the paypal entry and I regained access to their website.

    Now all I have to do is figure out how that file got modified...

    thanks for your help guys,

    Careful, that sound slike it might have been put their by a virus, a lot of people try to scam paypal users out of their username/password and pointing paypal to localhost is very odd.

    May sure to update your anti-virus and run a full scan, also run ad aware to check for possible spyware!
