Let me guess - you're in the Kentucky Area, right? Or at least using
Insight Broadband?

Your ISP seems to think you want to see an advertising page instead.

Dan C. will be telling you to format your hard drive. Ignore him.

Looks like this is it. Don't have Vista so can't confirm..

In Vista open help, type 'dns' into the search space, select the item
'change dns settings' and follow the instructions.

You're likely using IPV4, so just change that.

You'll be using a different set of DNS servers - these are the servers
that essentially tell your computer where to locate a specifc server.

Unless they maintain another set of DNS servers, no. But since the
'feature' of going to that search page is made on the DNS side, no
matter what, you'll need to change DNS servers. Whether it's to the
ones I provided earlier or another set for Insight.
