    I am using IE 5.5 / Win 98.

    I am having a big problem with my internet. I noticed someone was in my Network Setting and/or IE property, and now my whole internet doesn't work. I use AOL and I have talked with them for hours and they can't help me b.c they feel it is a computer problem. When I am online and try to get a web site and I get an "unable to display" messge. I have tried to repair, reinstall, and to restore IE, with no luck. Please give any suggestions!

    4. Under the CONFIGURATION tab, highlight AOL adapter.
    5. Click the REMOVE button.
    6. Click OK to close Control Panels window.
    7. Select YES when asked to restart the computer.
    8. The next time AOL is launched, a new AOL adapter will be created.

    1. Click START --> Settings --> Control Panel.
    2. Double-click the Network control panel to open it.
    3. Click the AOL Adapter.
    4. Click the Properties button.
    5. Select the "Bindings" tab and ensure TCP/IP > AOL Adapter is checked
    6. Click OK.
    7. Scroll down the list in the Network panel.
    8. Select "TCP/IP > AOL Adapter".
    9. Click the Properties button.
    10. Select the IP Address tab and ensure that "Obtain IP Address Automatically" is selected.
    11. Select the DNS Configuration tab, and ensure "Disable DNS" is selected.
    12. Select the Bindings tab and ensure that no bindings are selected (by unselecting any boxes which
    are checked).
    13. Select the Gateway tab and remove any gateways listed there.
    14. Select the WINS Configuration tab and ensure that "Disable WINS resolution" is selected.
    15. Click OK, then OK again, then restart your computer.

    16. Sign back on to AOL and try to connect to a web site.

    I was also having major problems using AOL/Windows 98 SE and I have got everything going again.Have a look at my nearby threads "graphics problems" & "printing from e-mails" and hopefully they might be the same solutions for you.
    Good luck!
