Internet connection problem with IE6?

 6:52 pm on Jul 26, 2007 (gmt 0)

It seems that my IE 6 browser just stopped working properly. I type in a valid web address and I receive an error message that tells me the page cannot be found. Currently, I'm using Firefox to type this help message so I know that the problem exists in the IE browser. I'm also trying to publish a website through Microsoft Frontpage, but it's telling me that I have a problem in my proxy settings. I am able to publish to the website through other computers, but this one is causing me problems. If anyone has any suggestions or is able to help, it would be much appreciated.

Welcome aboard hopefulcd, have you tried clearing the browser cache?

Hmm. Yeah, after trying to clear my browser cache I still have the same problem. I'm still not able to view any sites in my IE browser and Frontpage (2003) will not allow my to publish. I keep on receiving an error message that tells me:
Unable to open...
It then gives me 4 options to choose from:

1.The server does not have Frontpage extensions installed on it.
(I know it does b/c I've been publishing to this site for awhile now)

2.The webserver may be temp. out of service.
(I know that's not true b/c I can still access the site and publish to the site from other computers)

3. Your proxy settings are not set correctly.
(I'm fairly sure that this is my problem. Although, I'm not sure on how to go about fixing my proxy settings for IE(6.0).

4.An error may have occurred in the webserver.
(I really don't think that this is an issue at all.)

If you have any other suggestions or help, it would be much appreciated.

You can also try going to

-->Start --> Control Panel --> Internet Options --> connections(tab) --> Setup

This will open a wizard... obviously you have some connection or we wouldn't be having this discussion but it will test the connection and offer insight on what to do..... Hopefully that will help discover the cause or the cure.

Thought about trying IE7 to see if it works in that?

Did anyone tried a different settings in IE

You can try this thing.

Go to control panel-->Remove/add programs>remove window components>IE7

Then just reinstall IE by downloading it from microsoft site.(if your windows is no original try some warez site to get it)
