I am running a Windows XP system and having major problems with my internet connection (dial-up). I can connect to the internet but when I open up Internet Explorer it always comes up as Page cannot be displayed. My e-mail does not work either..I can ping IP addresses but not the actual names....DNS is pointing at the right servers....any ideas?

or use this fix

Run Regedit
Delete the following two registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2


Restart the computer
Go to Network Connections
Right click and select Properties
Click on the Install button
Select Protocol
Click on the Add button
Click on the Have Disk button
Browse to the \Windows\inf directory
Click on the Open button
Click on the OK button
