Membership – I am having some serious problems

I have created a stranger setting for both positive and negative rules with everything in one negative and everything in positive to the website. Neither is working. If I have no rules what so ever it still doesnt work and people have access to a good amount of the site.

Still denies me access to the blog when I have access to everything else… When the Protected Content Screen comes up it has a different menu that takes me to which I am able to view as a unregistered user.

Why would I have a different menu come up? How can I adjust this?
