I tried getting onto the site on Firefox, MSN, Internet Explorer and Safari, but the same thing happens (they used to let me go on this site too).

Check Control Panel->Internet Options->Connections Tab-> Lan Settings Button. Make sure Automatically detect settings is the only check mark. Close all browsers and try again.
