Most times when I want to go on the internet using my dialup ISP (AT&T) from my home computer as I wait for the "AT&T Webmail-Microsoft Internet Explorer" webpage to load, the first page to appear is "The Page Cannot Be Displayed". So I click the "Refresh" up top & then the correct page loads. How can I correct this so the right page appears first? This only happens on my home computer. I have Windows XP Home Edition SP2 version 2002, Internet Explorer 6.

Check the filter levels on your firewall and AV.

If Win Xp:
Click Start / Run / type in; cmd/ and at the black command screen type in; ipconfig /flushdns
and/or try:
Start / Run / type in; regsvr32 urlmon.dll
Click OK

You might also try to empty your Temporary Internet Files folder:
Open IE.
Click Tools.
Select Internet Options.
Click the General tab.
Click the Delete Files button.
When the box opens, put a check in Delete All Offline Content.
Click OK.

Also check PC date and time.
Double click the time in the taskbar, to open, and make sure the Time Zone and Daylight Savings settings are also correct.
Some sites block access when you have incorrect time settings.

Also see if this is of any help:

Still getting the same error message.
This started before I had a firewall & AV so that can't be.
I typed the commands in the Run box as you said & they were successful.
I deleted the files as you said too.
Date & time are correct.
On the Connections tab of Internet Options I do have both AT&T & Netzero in the Dialup & Private Networks box, but AT&T is my default server.

Have you updated, and run your antivirus?
Have you done any online virus scans?
Have you run any Spyware/Malware programs?
What Spyware/Malware programs do you use?

Yes Yes & Yes to the first three questions. I had to do all that because I just got rid of an I-worm/Stration infection. I use AVG's free 7.1 A-V, McAfee's Guardian firewall,Ewido's 4.0 A-S. I do scans religiously with CWShredder, AdAware SE, Spybot, disk defragmenter, all the recommended scans. This problem I speak of has been going on way before all that I just never addressed it before.

Have you tried cleaning out your Temporary Internet Files?
Did you try everything in the link I provided, in the previous post?
You can give this a try:
IEFix

See if this will help:

Got the following message when I tried the IEFix:
"Dr Watson Postmortem Debugger has encountered a problem & needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience".
I tired this online & with IE running. Was I supposed to run it offline & with IE closed?
What does this error message mean? I hope I didn't get another infection I just got rid of I-Worm/Stration.

Have you tried a repair of Internet Explorer?
How to Repair Internet Explorer 6 and Outlook Express in Windows

I tired this online & with IE running. Was I supposed to run it offline & with IE closed?

It doesn't say specifically, but I would close all running programs, try the fix, then reboot.

DrWatson Postmortem Debugger..... plays a major part in the Windows 2000/XP operating systems. It reports bugs to Microsoft if you choose to send the Error. This helps them find bugs in their software as a whole. It is NOT a virus.

There is no 1 single problem that causes this error, .... Unless it is a recurring problem, it is something you should take lightly and forget about it.

I realize this sounds very elementary, but your "problem" could be the way you go thru shutting down your computer. Try this if you haven't already. Close all programs and wait several seconds before going to start/turn off computer/turn off. Back in my dialup days, I had this same problem.
