Weird problem with Internet Explorer

  dave_the_red 22:04 29 Apr 2004

I have the strangest problem with internet explorer. It works great on my admin account but when somebody else logs in and uses it on a limited user account, web pages that begin with www. will not work. For example i did a search from the google toolbar i have installed. If i click on a link to a site that begins with www. nothing happens but if i click on a link that has not got www. at the beginning it works. Also if i type an address into the address bar nothing happens. It was working fine up until a couple of days ago. I am using IE6 and XP Pro. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

i think best bet is a system restore to known good working point, you will lose any new progs you have installed but can rectify easily enough.

I have tried these suggestions and no joy at the moment but nobody else but me is really using my pc at the moment so it does not bother me too much now. I will look into this in the future, thanks for your help.
