This may sound a bit odd, but I'm unable to get to www.yahoo.com

I'm using IE6 v6.0.2800.1106, any other website I attempt to reach opens perfectly. My O/S is WIN2K, SP4.

I've typed www.yahoo.com as shown here and the Windows Live Search results will show instead of the home page as though I entered an incomplete URL. However when I use a URL shortcut like typing yahoo and pressing Ctl+Enter(to auto add the www & .com) the "page...displayed" message results after 15secs as though its trying to connect to the website.

Even when using a search engine results such as Google or Live Search the website refuses to come up after clicking a link from the results.

When this first began about two weeks ago I assumed the home page was having a problem. This was because I could still reach my email(although I had to use yahoo messenger to let me get to it). To this day, this is how I get my email.

I've done virus scans and used Ad-Aware with no significant results(only cookies found).

Mod Edit: Topic moved from AII to more appropriate forum~ TMacK
