I have been having this problem alot lately and it just happened again. I will try to go to a site and get an error that says:

Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site http://majorgeeks.com Operation Aborted.

I am using Windows XP Home Edition. I must have a setting wrong but I don't even know where to begin looking for a problem. Would anyone know what might cause this to happen?

I sure would appreciate any help as this is so annoying. :thumbsup:

Try looking in your favorites, and if majorgeeks is there, delete it. also check links. That is usually a safe site, but who knows these days? Is your spyware up to date?
