Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop ?

Although my son and I share the same broadband modem/router, I am able to access hotmail on his computer but not on mine. This has been a problem for over a day now. I've tried deleting cookies, running "regsvr32 softpub.dll" etc., turning the firewall off and on again, doing a virus scan, trying to get to hotmail through various routes -- nothing works. I keep getting messages that "the server can't be found" or that "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." I have IE-8 (installed AFTER t


Answers :

1) try this
\015\012go to internet options.
click on the *advanced tab*
click reset all to default that should fix your problem.
\015\012if not, goto
\015\012Start > Run >
Type: C:\\Windows\\System32\\Drivers\\Etc\\hosts
Choose to open the file with notepad or word pad
The only lines you should see without a # in the front is "127.0.0.1 localhost". If you see hotmail, windowslive, msn etc.. you most definitely have some sort of virus/malware on your computer...
\015\012delete theese lines and save.
\015\012also get spybot and get it to scan for spyware (update it first).
Sounds like a security problem possibly by Norton or IE 8 which has a lot of security measures built in.
Try the following:
\012
    \012
  1. Open IE 8 and click on Tools
  2. \012
  3. Click on Internet Options
  4. \012
  5. Under Security tab, you will see a box that says Reset all zones to default level, click on that box
  6. \012
  7. Click on Apply
  8. \012
  9. Close out IE8
  10. \012
  11. Restart your browser and see if you're able to access hotmail.
If this doesn't work, it's possible to use a different browser ie Firefox, Opera to access your Hotmail account.  Please post back if you have any questions or to rate this answer.  Thank you for using Fixya!
