Internet explorer wont load web pages-due to ZA 5?

  Viv-208691 17:09 22 Jun 2004

Hi there, I'm extremely bemused by my PC. A couple of weeks ago I downloaded Zone Alarm 5 because several people had recommended the free Zone Labs firewall to me. However, I found that the firewall caused my internet connection to become unstable so I uninstalled the firewall. I have found since that Internet Explorer has been unable to load any pages, informing me that'The page cannot be displayed.'

I use AOL 9, IE 6 on a Win XP Home Edition PC.

Can someone please help me since I dont want to have to pay to have my PC looked at by the manufacturer.

Kind regards, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Does your AOL browser work properly?

I can sign into AOL ok (it uses the broadband connection to do this) and i can access the AOL 'channels' but no 'world wide web' services.

Therefore it must be a problem with IE.

Kind regards

Yes but have you tried browsing the web using aol9 and not IE?

  Viv-208691 17:35 22 Jun 2004

Yes i have, AOL won't open the web pages either. It displays the same "page cannot be displayed" message.

Thanks for your help

You could try repairing xp using the xp cd, this will keep your documents/programs ect but would loose any XP updates.

more help in the meantime would be equally appreciated.

kind regards
