When i try to access certain websites eg.hotmail.com o2.com a microsoft help page i am directed to sometimes when i open an explorer box, and also an msn group login screen, after i have logged in the page says it is "done" at the bottom left but nothing is loaded up and no matter how many times it is refreshed the page will not work! the pages work on other peoples computers so does anybody know how i can fix this, i have tried both ie5.5 and ie6 and neither make a difference, thanks

What operating system are you running?
Also, if you open just IE, does it work or not?
Kinda sounds like you're saying you're opening msn, windows explorer and IE??

Go to Start > Run and type in cmd and click ok.
When the command prompt comes up;
type in "ping 64.58.76.176" with out the quotes and hit Enter on the keyboard.

You should get something like the following:

C:\WINDOWS\Desktop>ping 64.58.76.176

Del,
someone suggested that IE was corrupt and should try to reload xp which I have done.unfortunately most of the icons which I had on the desktop are now not showingalthough when I go to windows explorer the programs are showing.I bought my machine with xp(home) preloaded.By mistake I have ended up loading windows xp professional.Could this be why the icons are not showing?I willdo the pinging later and will post the outcome .

In Win XP home or pro, you can repair a corrupt IE without reinstalling XP over itself.
Very possible the mismatch did in your icons on your desktop.
Not sure what to tell you at this point.
:confused:

Have you tried the ping test I suggested earlier? Might not have anything to do with IE.

You can also try these commands.
Start > Run "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" without the quotes and hit OK, you'll see a black screen flash by, then try this
Start, then Run then type in 'CMD' without the apostrophes. At the command prompt type in 'ipconfig /flushdns'.

Depends on how you connect, software you use, O/S and the time you ping the site, if it's busy, times will change.
