Keep getting an error message saying Internet explorer cannot open website, operation aborted. This has been happening for about a week now. Any ideas what has caused this problem?

Any particular website?

try updating to internet explorer 7, if you only have version 6 on your computer.

Try.Command Prompt.Type in. ipconfig /flushdns a small space between ipconfig and forward slash or it will not work.It should the tell you DNS has been flushed if so reboot and see if it helps.

Whenever I click on my internet expl tab, it brings up MSN. Anyone advise how I can dump MSN (I'm a bit reluctant to do that in case something awful happens)and get IE7 back?

Also, I've been hearing worrying things about IE8 problems, should I install it, or wait a while until they're sorted?

thanks
