Hello,
I am a Computer tech and have checked my PC with Malwarebytes, Superantiantispyware, AVG 9.0, Spybot, Adaware, and i have a clean bill of health. Cleaned out Temp and Cookies, reset IE back to Defaults, with no help.
I have winXP corp edit. and IE6, 2 gigs of ram, P4- 2.53gig.
What happens is when i double click on IE, at the bottom it tells me connecting to site 67.63.50.36 which is the address for Webcrawler my home page i beleive. Then it just times out and says the page cannot be displayed. After closing the IE page and starting it up again for a few times it will work by saying connecting to site Webcrawler.com. it does this with any site i use and only one computer does this. i dont do anything, it will just come up.
I am using Cable and a linksys g-band router, replaced router and same thing happens.
Anyone have any ideas?
thanks

Is your network connection DHCP or static? Are your DNS servers supplied by your ISP?

All below from command prompt;

Look at output from ipconfig /all and try pinging your DNS severs.

Try a couple of nslookups for sites you never use www.yahoo.com.... does DNS resolve FQDN to IPaddress?

Try flushing DNS cache, flushdns.

Check Internet Explorer Toools/Internet Options Connection/LAN Settings Proxy Server setting, to see if you are being redirected.

Many, if not most, websites no longer support IE 6, considering that IE8 is the best protected version of that browser.

I would think that too, but it works more than it doesnt, for example if i open IE 10 times a day lets say, 8 will work fine, 2 times it wont. I also cant upgrade to IE7 or 8 due to Winxp Corp edition. Besides that the computer works great and still fast for what i need it for.
