I can't call up any sites with Internet Explorer. I don't know whether this is a blessing or a curse. I have tried all of the pinned suggestions. I have a linksys router which I've bypassed and I've turned off my ZoneAlarm Internet Security; heck, I've even uninstalled it. Reiinstalled when discovered that that wasn't the problem. My uber-geek bud, 'SoundBlister,' wonders what is my problem. My Firefox, Opera, and K-meleon work fine. Automatic Updates works fine. I have even uninstalled and reinstalled the OS, XP Professional SP2, and still obtain the same results. I have tried it without selected programs installed. I have had the hardware and software environment checked by an ex-employee of Microsoft. He couldn't find anything wrong, except IE can't raise any sites. I live in Huntsville, AL and in a rural setting without any profound radiation sources. None of my neighbors have this problem. I figured that I must be doing something during setup or configuration (like turning off the wrong service), so I got a friend to install XP the last time. Nope. I forgot about the problem for a few months because it doesn't really bother me. I can download from the Microsoft sites with Firefox; Microsoft provides a plugin for that. It is the mystery that bothers me. Any theories welcome. I don't have this problem on my other Windows computer, just my main one. I don't use IE on my Mac.
Any information needed beyond what I given?

Hello,

This is just a suggestion you may consider trying, not a fix or workaround.

Maybe downloading and installing IE7 beta is worth a shot. Just some food for thought.

Hope this helps,

I thought that the suggestion to install on that computer IE 7 beta a farfetched idea, but it worked. Whadda you know. It just proves that computers are dumb. The problem solved. Thank you.
