OnePlus 5 review
My son runs Windows XP and has recently started having problems. Whilst he can send and receive e-mails and download things such as Windows Update, every time he tries to visit a Web Site, he gets an error notice telling him the site is unavailable. He uses Internet Explorer 6 and has recently loaded IE 7 but the result is still the same. He is obviously getting through to the net as he can get his emails and can receive windows updates, but has anybody any idea why he can't get into the web sites, It's almost the same as having sound but no vision.
Help would be appreciated.
Thanks. We've tried System Restore and it makes no difference to INternet Explorer, which simply does not work, BUT if we System Restore and then try to access the web sites using MSN, it works o.k. but only for one log-on. If he logs off from MSN, and then goes back on, we go back to square one and have to go all through the System Restore, MSN route again. Meantime, Internet Explorer will not get him into any web sites.
Try ,Tools.Internet options,Advanced.And press the reset Button.You will loose any add ons but you can always download them again.
Any luck yet.If not Download Firefox that should work Ok.
Sorry, Buteman, we've had no luck with Firefox or Internet Explorer 7. There's something very funny going on here as if we roll back a couple of months using System Restore, we can get on the Internet using MSN for ONE session only, but if we log off and log on again, that doesn't work either. We have to use System Restore again.In each case, none opf the other browsers work at all.

There's a lot to digest there but we'll give them a whirl and come back to you. Thanks for your efforts.
Sorry, you've got me beat there. What is MTU and which programme in the list you attached is the one to use?
Thanks for your interest.
It may be that the DNS service of your ISP isn't functioning or the mapping / routing to the DNS servers themselves may be faulty.
All web sites are really in a form like http:// 62.233.121. 4/ but in practice we use a form like click here. iomart. com/ (note spaces added to stop this website
The DNS servers translate click here style to click here
To see if this is the problem, type (without the spaces) http:// 62.233.121. 4/ in the address bar of the browser and see if it loads the iomart.com website. If so, contact your ISP and find out what is going on.
