Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

I've created a new thread for your issue here.

Note: You will need to post complete details of your configuration and your specific issue in this new thread for us to help you.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Thank you for responding and for your help.

Not sure, what configuration you are looking for. Specific problem: Click on start, then Internet Explorer, above error appears in box, click on OK, Internet window opens, error appears again, click on OK, connecting….connecting….connecting… but does not connect UNLESS I click on home and go to AT & T home page. This is an annoying nuisance.

Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Version 2002 Service Pack 2
Compaq
AMD Athlon Processor
994 MHz 512 MB of RAM

Uning Linksys Router wireless for 3-4 laptops that use Vista
ISP AT & T

Sorry for my novice vocab. Not much into programming computers etc.

From the looks of the reference, you apparently have AOL installed, or did at some point. It seems the installation is corrupted.

Did you try changing your default home page in IE?

You are correct. I have AOL installed. I prefer AOL email but use IE for searching. This morning I deleted the AOL program. IE still states the above error upon reboot. I reinstalled an updated AOL 9.1 with a "toolbar for IE". Still same problem. I checked to make sure IE is my default brouser: it is. My home page on IE is AT & T and now a 2nd home page for the new 9.1 AOL.

Continued: The connectiog...connecting...remains. I am ready to just accept this but it is irritating.
Thanks for your opinion.
