Hi,

I recently removed several different trojans from my Windows 2000 SP4 installation. Everything is now working fine, EXCEPT that Internet Explorer (6.0 w/SP1) no longer has the ability to show NT-style authentication windows, and instead keeps returning 'The page cannot be displayed' errors. The type of dialog boxes I am rerferring are those that one might get when trying to access Cpanel, for example, or webmail via a port. For example:

http://mydomain.com/cpanel, or
http://mydomain.com:2082
http://myemail@mycomain.com:2095

At that point, normally an NT-style authentication window appears, prompting for the proper credentials to enter the site.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

have you gone thru your internet control panel and reset
the security tab to defaults?
and the same with programs and advanced?

you *might* need to add the domain you are needing to
connect to... to your "trusted" sites in the internet control
panel.

just a thought

Hi Rex,

Yes, I've looked over my security settings, and they are where they should be. It's not a trusted site issue, it happens wherever any similar authentication is required (e.g., a password protected web site directory, etc.). It's baffling me, that's for sure...

another thought...

have you tried making an another account on your machine
with the proper username/password that you need to have
for access to your protected website?

not sure if this actually changes anything...

have you tried firefox or mozilla? just to isolate the problem
to just IE or your OS.

Yes, Firefox works just fine, and it definitely seems isolated to IE. I tried re-installing IE, that did not cure the problem. I should also clarify that the "page not found" is really the symptom, but the problem message is that IE claims "Cannot find server or DNS Error". It's almost as if the browser does not know how to properly interpret the addition of the port (e.g., :2095 or :2082) or the /cpanel to the end of the URL, and tries to look it up as though it were a normal HTML page. Any thoughts on that?

your machine or not... i read about it on a securities based
website...

microsoft baseline security analyzer

this is about the last thing i can think of.
