IE6 Opens Google and MSN but nothing else

wierd one this.
i'm trying to set up a brand new Acer Laptop for my mate out in South Africa (we only bought it on Tuesday)

i got it out of the box last night and IE6 will not open anything apart from basic sites like Google or MSN.

Google will do a search no problem, but if you click on a link or type an address in manually, it just hangs and eventually comes up with the '...Cannot open...' error message

click here half opens i.e. blueyonder log opens up, but nothing else

i've tried using on wirless network and LAN; turned Firewall off an on again and restored to beginning twice!

any ideas
