This is just an interesting problem I discovered and resolved that I don't understand--but if someone else has it, perhaps this will help.
For the past few days, I have been unable to access my Home Page, which is www.comcast.net from IE.6.0.28. It appears that the site get's accessed, but then gets redirected--and IE sits there working and working, with lots of fast messages flashing on the screen in the lower left (where the status is displayed)--but eventually I have to STOP the access.
I could access the site from the same computer, using Netscape--or from a different computer on my same home network using IE.
I was going through the instructions to post a HiJack this log, thinking I had some sort of trojan or virus. One of the steps is to run Stinger. When I launched it, I noticed on the Stinger window, Scan initiated on Friday, May 26, 2006. OPPS, it is not May 26--it is March 26. A quick check, and sure enough my computer was on the wrong date. (I had looked at the calendar and accidently reset the time.)
I reset the clock and date, and just for laughs, went back to www.comcast.net. And it now worked!
I can't for the life of me understand why Comcast would care about what date I have set in my 'puter--nor why it only seems to matter when accessing the site from IE.
Any thoughts or comments!
