    My friend is using AOL (dial up) for her windows xp home pc, service pack 2, 512mb ram, 80 gb hard drive, p4 2.8, and this error message started happening 2 days ago. For AOL, it does not show the webpages at all, just looks like its loading the page, but stays frozen. When you try using IE 6, it shows this error message:
    the requested look up key was not found in any activation content

    So i tried the following steps:

    1. right click on internet explorer icon on your desktop

    2. click on properties

    3. then click on advanced

    4. then go down to were it says show friendly URL's and tick the box

    easy as that

    But when i right click on IE icon, properties, I dont see anything that says advance, except a tab, so i click on the tab, but then i look for "show friendly URL's" i didnt see nothing like that, i did see "show friendly http error message" and thats it, can someone help PLEASE!! this person is using IE 6.

    Thank you

    If you open internet explorer, at the top--click tools, internet options, advanced tab, under browsing, you'll find 'show friendly url's-right below 'show friendly error messages'.
