This may sound weird, but I cannot access AdSense for over a month already. Every time I go their website the page just hangs, and I don't see anything: no login box, nothing, and the page download status bar in my browser freezes. I can access Google itself, AdWords, but not AdSense. I know I am not banned or anything, coz they keep sending me checks, but there is some kind of browser problem. This is the only site on the web I cannot access :( cannot see my stats, cannot get the code... I use MSIE. Does anybody else ever experience smth like that? How do you fix that?

You may have a corrupted cookie, you may want to delete cookies, it may be worth a try.

I've been having exactly the same problem for about 4-6 weeks now. I haven't been too worried about it as I can view the source code to see my stats, or simply view them in FF. It only happens with Adsense, no where else.

I've tried the clearing the cookies, TIFS, history etc., adjusting the security settings, even tried repairing IE but nothing seems to fix it. The weird thing is that it corrects itself occasionally (without my doing anything) and all returns to normal for a while, then suddenly it happens again.

Curiouser and curiouser.

Try these :

1 . Empty cookies
2 . Download and run "Hijack this". Maybe your browser has been hijacked by BHO exploits or like. Remove any thing that u find suspicious.
3 . It may also happen if u recently installed a Firewall/AV that is blocking scripts etc.

If none of the above solves your problem, download firefox and use it to log on to adsense CP. I think firefox is about 5 Mb or so.

Hope you fix your problem

Are you using IE 7.0? There is warning box that some time comes up when I try to open adsense page and it warns me of invalid security certificate. If you have click on the no option, then you won’t be able to open this page. I think IE 7.0 by default blocks site with invalid certificate. Just installed firefox and when that warning comes, click on yes.
