O.k this is driving me crazy - I find that I can't connect to certian sites with IE.. I have IE 6 with Windows XP Pro - I re-adjusted all the securtiy settings, and enabled cookies and such it still won't let me ..

One of the sites I can't connect to is www.adobe.com - anybody know what could be causing this ???

Gee - now what could make you think that ??? I know it's my Computer - There are settings somewhere that are conflicting..

I don't have any sites in my blocked list .. Hmmm - I'm thinking about maybe restoring and seeing what that does,, man I don't want to do that ..

Just to make sure we are on the same page - if you got Tools, Internet Options, Privacy tab, click on Edit at the bottom under websites, and then type in www.adobe.com and then click allow and OK out - it gives you a 404??

By doing the above you pretty much allow a site regardless of what it's privacy policy is - thus just about anything (to the best of my knowledge) should be permitted thru>

I would suggest you wait and see if any of the experts come around and can help before doing anything drastic.

I guess my last question would be - have you ever been able to get to that site? Maybe a system restore might help! If it doen;t help you can always undo the restore!

Well, it doesn't look like Happy Valley is very happy today - I am out of suggestions - perhaps someone (and there are plenty) more knowledgeable than I will be able to help you out!

For what it is worth - I am original from Reading and had been a Steelers fan during the Stallworth/Bradshaw/Lambert days!

Since you can still visit this site it looks like, download FireBird for me, and check if you can reach it then. If you cant you will need to check with your ISP.

Hmm... it definitely wouldn't hurt to check with your ISP. It sounds like it could have something to do with DNS, however I'm not sure why this would only occur on certain sites. Just for the fun of it, enter this address into the address bar: 192.150.22.119
This is an address for Adobe's homepage, just curious as to whether the domain names weren't being resolved for some reason. Let us know if that works. If anything, it might narrow the problem a bit. :)

I had the same problem, until I put in a new m/b and did a restore from the cd, as it didn't want to boot to xp. It removed a lot of files and replaced them with new ones. Did a total update on xp and ie, and now it works like a dream. I beleive it is caused by certain sites when you allow them to access your drive. eg.
when downloading cracks and allowing them to install files.

My suggestion is to reload ie 6 and redo all the updates again.

Got this idea from ejm. :)

If you are starting to pull your hair out try these>

Try this to repair IE
Start/Run/regsvr32 urlmon.dll

OR

To reinstall IE
Start/run/rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 c:\windows\inf\ie.inf

OR

Microsoft

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
