Internet Explorer 6 Can't Browse, Other Programs Browse Fine...

    On an XP Pro system, I web browse from the system out to domain name
    and direct IP address web sites using FireFox, but Internet Explorer 6
    cannot browse to any site, not even 127.0.0.1 with a local web server
    running! It can browse to local files through the file system (such as
    "file://C:\test.html").

    All other Internet services work, such as FTP, PING, VNC, etc. out to
    the LAN or Internet.

    The other weird thing is that I cannot ping this machine or connect to
    its shares from the LAN or web.

    What could it be?

    Thanks!

    Tools, internetet options, connections, lan settings, make sure Use a
    proxy is unchecked?

    Failing that, the version of IE and the error would help.
