    I was at some ones house and they have dialup with Windows XP all updates
    installed we can surf with Netscape and if you open windows Explorer and
    type in a url in the address bar you can view the web page but if you try IE
    you just get can not find server page. In fact popups from pages viewed in
    windows explorer die as well.

    It is odd that one would work and the other not as they are all part of
    Windows. IE is such a part of XP you can not uninstall it any more. I did
    find a MS article about how to change the registry to make windows update
    think that you do not have the latest version of IE or to run system file
    checker. But they have dialup who wants to wait around for that.

    Any ideas before I try the IE update.

    They called Sony and got the old use the restore cd.
