IE 6 will not load--"Can not findserver"

I can not get IE 6 to come up. Instead I get the "can not find server" page.
When that does come up, I can still get into OE mail. I have access to DSL
Yahoo and can get into all internet sites as well as yahoo mail. I suspect
that an IE 6 file became corrupted when I loaded QuickBooks even though I
opted out of installing IE5. I have tried the following: Removed Q.B.s, ran
sfc /scannow, scanned for viruses with Norton Inter. Sec, down loaded and ran
MS 1.0 spyware, downloaded and upgraded all XP HE and IE 6 to latest, talked
to Toshiba support who agrees that I have a problem with IE 6 and after a
series of tests, suggested that I find a way to repair XP HE. My Toshiba
recovery disk, aside from providing a lot of drivers, only gives me the
option of formating the entire hard drive and completely reinstalling all
supplied software. MS has a procedure for repairing IE but that requres the
original installation disk that Toshiba did not supply. I have a desk top
that is running XP HE and IE 6 works well. Is it possible to use that as a
repair source? and if so, how do I make it work? I have a wireless
connection between the lap top and desk top. I would prefer to use IE6 rather
than set Yahoo as the default.

just a check, check your registry key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\ Download Directory key

I checked (compared) the reg key on the "bad" laptop to the "good" desk top.
The laptop has 3 entries [(default), Reg_SZ, value not set];
[CheckexeSignatures, Reg_SZ, yes]; [RunInvalidSignatures, Reg_DWORD,
0x00000000(0)]---The desk top has only the one [(default), Reg_SZ, value not
set] Both running XP HE sp2. I must admit that I do not know what to do
with the information.

Scratch my last post--I went too far down the HKCU reg. In the desktop,
under IE, there is a key "DownloadDirectory" = G:\ ---the virtual disk
assigned for the receipt and storage of all downloads. In the Laptop, there
is no key "DownloadDirectory" under IE.

couple questions:

1) your using a linksys wireless router of some sort? do you know how to
enter your webpage manager for it http://192.168.1.1 and login? the
default user name is admin and password is blank or the username is blank
and the password is password or admin or administrator something like that.
When you enter this webpage, you will see an "ipconfig" for it where it will
show your external ip address , gateway and dns servers , paste those here
as well.

2) when you browser to http://www.yahoo.com and go to mail it works fine?

3) are there any odd entries in c;\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file
when you open it in notepad?

4) im assuming in control panel > network connections > lan connection >
properties > tcp ip > properties that you have "obtain ip address
automatically on"?

The settings are set to get these addresses from the ISP. The numbers shown
are those if the static addresses are checked. The numbers would not paste,
so I wrote them in.

Yes, I can get into Yahoo.com for mail and the internet. This is how I am
communicating with you. Also, as I said at first, I can get into MS Mail
(OE) thru IE even though I can not get the web portion of IE to come up.

There are no odd entries in the \\\hosts file---only a local host setting.

Yes to question #4

IP Address
Get Dynamically From ISP this is the setting
Use Static IP Address
IP Address ... 64.252.134.207 these are 'grayed' out
IP Subnet Mask ... 255.255.255.0
Gateway IP Address ...64.252.134.206

Domain Name Server (DNS) Address
Get Automatically From ISP this is the setting
Use These DNS Servers
Primary DNS ... all '0's grayed out
Secondary DNS ...

Sorry to confuse you. When I got DSL installed SBCYahoo also supplied a
stand alone browser. This works find for both the yahoo mail and the
internet (yahoo.com). I am also able to get Outlook Exp. to work but not IE.
The following is what I got. Everything works wirelessly through the same
router.

ok there is your problem. your dns server is not responding and your only
getting "cached" information (or places you have gone before when it was
working) your wireless device that your connecting too is not doing dns
correctly. you have 2 options. 1) get the wireless device to grab yahoo's
dns server ip addresses in the webpage manager correctly ( you can call yahoo
to help you with this) 2) you can find out the external ip address's (not
starting with 192.168) of the yahoo dns servers and manually add them in your
control panel> network > lan connection > properties > tcp ip > properites
(on the bottom u can manually add dns server ip addreses "use the following
dns server")

One question: My desk top is connected (hard wired) to the same router as
the wireless laptop. If the problem is with the router not doing dns
correctly, why is the problem only with the wireless laptop and not the desk
top? I did the DOS analysis on this machine (the desktop) and it seems to be
identical to the laptop.

IE 6 will not load--"Can not findserver"
