I am in the late stages of rebuilding an XP Home system for a friend.
As I have a wireless ADSL connection I thought it would be a good idea to download all the Microsoft Updates that this machine now needs.
However when I try to access ANY website using Internet Explorer V6 I am blocked and the following wording is displayed on the screen.
You were denied access because:
Access denied by access control list.
I have trawled the internet for information on this matter and found this : http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=316699
However, I cannot believe that this is caused by a connection to my ISP because when I attempt to access the internet using Firefox, I have no problems until I try to download updates from Microsoft which insists on Internet Explorer being used.
Therefore I can only think that this problem is to do with a setting somewhere in Internet Explorer.
I have experienced this problem in the past on other machines and after a struggle managed to get it to work but not known how I have done it. This time though, it`s got me stumped.
Anyone know a solution to this problem ?
