msg HTTP 403 Forbidden - I can't seem to solve this problem

Trying to log into a reservation website that I use ALL the time and now am getting this error msg. 

This error (HTTP 403 Forbidden) means that Internet Explorer was able to connect to the website, but it does not have permission to view the webpage.

 My husband has no problem on his computer - I contacted the website help desk and they said to contact Comcast - thought I'd start here,  hope someone has a solution

thanks

Click Start, Run. Type in sfc /scannow and click OK. When the scan is complete, reboot and see if that helped.

Read this information on this at this Link from Microsoft to see if this will help you.

As DoubleG says sfc /scannow is good, but you could also try repairing your browser.

Click Start/Control panel/ Add Remove programs/Internet Explorer and choose Repair.
