Internet Explorer won't access internet

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Gregory Schulz, Jun 2, 2004.

  1. Hello everyone-

    Recently, MSIE stopped accessing the internet, as did Windows Media
    Player. Both have been working for years, but they just stopped. I did
    a "soft" system recovery and MSIE worked again for about a week, then it
    stopped again. What appears is "the page cannot be displayed".
    Detecting internet settings and fixing/restoring an older version of
    MSIE does not make a difference. I still have connectivity through
    Netscape. What's wrong?

    I'm running Widows ME, HP Pavilion 900 MHz PIII, 128 meg ram, Comcast
    cable internet.

    My guess: you've disallowed IE access via your (software) firewall.

    Ed. Note: This is not necessarily a bad thing. }:O)
