    I have a problem running Internet Explorer using my account name from Aol, just get the Cannot display page and at bottom of page screen a further message cannot find Serveror DNS error. at bottom of page
    If I use my second Aol Email Address Internet Exporer runs okay I have checked options and connections and can find no errors run a computer check.
    I am using Explorer 5.5 with 1000 meg system 228 ram.
    I realize it must be a Aol problem but thought I would try your support first
    When I boot up I also get A line displayed as Follows that could be the problem as I do not know what it means c:\<rem - Windows98 and c:\net work -c:\windows\net start would appreciate any help Thanks Jim

    I think that you are right with that could be an AOL problem. Can you connect to any webpage through it.

    For some reason, people from AOL cannot send email to our work anymore. AOL does not forward it on. It just drops off somewhere into cyberspace. People from our site can no longer access AOL webmail either. We changed nothing and other companies in our co-operative report the same thing. It seems to me that AOL loves to change things and not inform thier customers about it.

    The c:\ is your root drive as displayed in a dos or command prompt. Win98 and 95 would show that on occasion when booting. I doubt that has anything to do with your problem.
