Internet explorer problem

  FatboySlim71 14:25 18 Feb 2006

I have windows XP Professional, I also have AOL 9 Broadband. If I connect to AOL and type in a web address I can get on to that site, however if I do it in Internet Explorer nothing appears, also when I am updating programs most automatically open Internet Explorer, on the bottom left handside of the screen it shows CONNECTING TO SITE THEN AFTER 10 SECONDS OR SO IT SHOWS THIS PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED, I have read the text that appears when this happens as well and I cannot find anything wrong, the only thing I think is different is when I go into internet explorer,tools, internet options, then click on the connections box, there used to be in the DIAL UP AND VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK SETTINGS BOX, I am sure it used to show AOL in the box, but now it is just blank.

Thanks everyone for the help. I have since solved the problem, well by accident really. I have Hide IP Platinum, I loaded this up and after I had the problems I mentioned were no more. Don't know how or if the Hide IP program made the problem go away, but it looks to me like it did.
