    What the network consists of:

    1 host computer running windows xp
    1 laptop running windows xp
    1 hub

    The problem:

    I am able to share files between the computers and access webpages perfectly fine on the host computer. On the networked laptop I am able to share files and visit certain websites such as hotmail, download.com, msn.ca, etc. I am not able to visit websites such as candystand.com, yahoo.com, etc. Is there a way that I can fix this problem?? Please help :(

    Do you have the latest updates and service packs for IE6 on your laptop as well as your desktop? Run Windows update to be sure.

    Please go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/, and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log as a .txt file, and copy and paste its contents into your next post.

    Most of what it lists will be harmless, so do not fix anything yet. I don't know how to read it :)p) but others here do and may find something that could be causing this.
