    Ok i got windows XP and i got IE6

    i downloaded a program called Tweak-XP
    and enabled ad-blocker
    then the website rd.yahoo.com
    was in the list of sites which were blocked
    so i cancelled blocking that site
    but not whenever yahoo.com directs me to a rd.yahoo.com site my IE says Page cannot be Found

    Example of how it redirects me there;

    When i go to www.yahoo.com, I click Movies, I clcik the Matrix new trailer i click it then yahoo goes to

    http://rd.yahoo.com/movies/top/prom...hoo.com/movies/feature/thematrixreloaded.html

    as one site

    but if i cut "http://rd.yahoo.com/movies/top/promos/matrix/?"
    it works
    but how can i make my pc allow me to go to the site without cutting the rd.yahoo.com part??????

    Could be some 3rd party software you installed.
    Try IE > Tools > Internet Options and Click Privacy.
    Lower the settings to low and see if it works.

    In XP the Hosts file which is used to do things like that is located in:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

    Open it in Notepad and remove all but the first line (localhost 127.0.0.1)

    If what Rog suggested don't work, you can try a repair on IE.

    You can reinstall IE in Windows XP by clicking Start, Run and entering the following command:

    rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf

    You will need to have your XP CD available.

    Glad to hear it. Yup it's the Hosts file no matter what Windows version, but in XP it's located differently and exists whether or not anything uses it. It isn't really required though.
