On my p/c that runs Windows 98 and Internet Explorer I can get to lavasoftusa.com website but on my p/c that runs XP and Internet Explorer the site comes up invalid. The XP machine can get to other websites. Any suggestions for how to fix this or why it's happening?

Do you have any firewall software on that machine? Is it on a network? If so, have you checked the MS firewall? You can find it in Control Panel>Network Connections, right click Properties on the LAN connection, Advanced tab.

PS: Just looked (I have a "spare" dialup connection, but use broadband) and dialup connection properties also have the MS Firewall.

I have ZoneAlarm on both machines. The settings are the same and only the XP machine can't get to the site. I checked the things you asked about and the "Internet Connection" firewall is checked on the XP machine in properties under Local Area Connection. i'm not on a network. What's next?
Thanks for helping.

jackh: if you have ZoneAlarm, you certainly don't need the MS XP one also....you said you have a local area connection but no network; I assume (I know, I know :D) that you are one high speed internet through a NIC card...

this being the case, just uncheck the MS XP firewall, ZoneAlarm can do the job. If you still have issues, check the settings in ZA (in Firewall, Main tab).
