Running xp pro and latest updates I find that while nearly the whole web is
available to me, quite a few pages on my providers site bring up the Page
cannot be displayed message. Logging on with another computer using win98
resolves the problem so it is on my machine. Obviously have tried nearly
everything including reinstall of SP2.
Any ideas.
Help appreciated.
Regards,
John.

Are these sites that you cannot get to are secured? (https)

Try going to www.wellsfargo.com and click on sign on.....if the next screen comes up then you are not having secured site issues.

What are the URL's that you are having issues with?

Check C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc for a file named HOSTS with no
extension. (Not Hosts.sam)
Make sure Windows is set to show hidden files and folders and is NOT set to
hide extensions for known file types.
If HOSTS exists, rename it to HOSTS.OLD
Reboot an try again.

Or, In a Cmd window, enter
ipconfig /flushdns
then clear your TIF also, and re-boot.
