Home Page won't load

I can connect to net and use OE but my Internet Home Page won't load, nor will any other web page.

The window comes up blank and when I try to X out of it, an error message comes up saying 'Window still in use. Closing it may cause problems'. Whether I click on yes or no, it refuses to go away. I end up having to restart.

I am having to use my work internet connection to try and find a solution. Should I try and reinstall IE from Mesh recovery CD or is something else stopping it?

WinXP
Repair Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. Start, Run and type in "sfc /scannow" (not the quotes) and have your WinXP CD ready to put in the drive.


Win98
Repair Internet Explorer. Add/Remove Programs and select the repair option (if present).

Cheers BurrWalnut. I'll try that. Will it make any difference that I only have recovery CD rather than real thing?

Um, don't know.

Maybe there is someone on here who knows about the contents of recovery CDs.

Shouldn' t really matter as my mesh recovery cd is actually a full version of win xp home, it's just been mesh branded

Cheers guys. I'm gonna have fun typing all that into the run box..but I'm desperate enough to give it a try

Is it not simply that your home page is not at present set as default.

In OE, tools, Internet Options

reset you home page and apply

You using TISCALI by any chance as their webpages are experiencing difficulty. Should be oK soon enough

No Sattman, it's trying to load the right home page but screen remains blank...and connection is BT broadband Mikey...I've tried all stuff suggested above but it's not done any good...cheers anyway
