what geocities page are you trying to get to... they could be blocked by your isp btw. So it may not be an IE problem.

Can you access other sites in IE, or is it just geocities?

This turned out to be the solution...

The problem is on Geocities side. For some reason they are blocking our proxy server. You can access their sites with Internet Explorer by disabling the proxies.

To Turn the Proxy Server 'OFF':


Using Internet Explorer

· Open Internet Explorer
· Select 'Tools', 'Internet Options', 'Connections'
· Click 'LAN' Settings button at the lower right corner
· Uncheck options under 'Automatic Configuration' and 'Proxy Server'
· Click 'OK'
· Click 'Apply', if available
· Click 'OK'
· Click the 'Refresh' button (Next to the 'Home' button)


Using Netscape

· Open Netscape
· Select 'Edit', then 'Preferences'
· Double-click 'Advanced', in the left menu
· Click 'Proxies'
· Click to change the setting to 'Direct connection to the Internet'
· Click 'OK'
· Click the 'Reload' button (Next to the 'Home' button)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
