I have a problem that is driving me wacko.
I am working on a friends computer. It can connect to his homepage, yahoo.com, but no other pages. If I drop to a command prompt I can ping yahoo, but no other sites.
Anyone seen this before? I have always seen that you cannot connect to the internet at all not selective sites.
Now the particulars.....
Win XP home - SP 3
512 Mb ram
I upgraded him to IE 8
I connected to the internet with AVG Antivirus to install and to Microsoft to get the updates for his system. But I cannot type Microsoft.com into IE and go there.
Dell comp if that helps.
If any more info needed please let me know.
Thanks for looking!
