On another of my computers.

When I try to start IE6, there is screen flash like it is going to startup and then it immediately kicks me back to the desktop. Sometimes I briefly get a window before it kicks me back.

Interestingly, I can start AOL and actually read my email, but none of their windows display. All of the windows have the typical error message when you can't connect to a web site. No other functions work in AOL either.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled ie6.

I am running XP home.

Thanks in advance

Hi Redwood,

Hi redwood,

This is a complex problem that is seldom fixed in the first try.
There are many possible reasons this is happening and the contributing factors vary for every individual computer.

Lets see if we can try and repair the internet connection.

Click Start, click Run, type netsh winsock reset and then click Okay.
When the Command Prompt flashes, restart the computer.

Note: If you have a program that no longer functions correctly after you follow this step, reinstall the program.

Also see if there is anything in this Micro$oft Article that helps: Page Cannot be Displayed
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
