    While my Windows XP desktop was sitting idle, it developed a bug in IE 6. Any attempt to use it resulted in the "page cannot be displayed" message after it searched for site 206.132.166.27 I noticed my home page had been reset to the Microsoft one. Normally it is www.dellnet.com, so I set it back to that and still got the same result. However, it does work if set to about:blank, and if I enter the dellnet.com address in google, it opens up as it normally should. Any ideas? Thanks

    The only way I could reach dellnet was www.dellnet.msn.com. Your posted link would not open.

    You're right, I meant to say that the www.dellnet.com, when used in Firefox Google, opens a list of sites which includes my normal home page, which I now know is dellnet.msn.com. No clue how my default home page became dellnet.com, which it still is, but inserting the msn returned it to normal. Thanks.
