Can't use Internet Explorer

  Fingees 19:27 09 Dec 2006

I get this message when trying to use IE7.

Whatever site I try to visit.

You were denied access because:
Access denied by access control list.

reverted to IE6, but still the same.

firewall set OK.

can use firefox with no problem.

Don't want to restore.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I have administrator rights, but still no joy.

Don't know where access control is, or anything about it.
New one on me.

Not got a clue,click here something stopping you,I take it you have Internet Explorer set as your main Internet Default Browser,Try switching your Firewall and Anti-Virus off, See If that helps,I understand it can be dissabled with Spybot,But I am sure that you have tried all those.

Tried the solutions suggested, but still not working.

Installed IE7 again, still doesn't work.

Firefox is ok, so have to use that. till I find a solution.

I normally do use Firefox, but for windows updates, IE usually opens by default, as Microsoft doesn't like other browsers.
