  • Can't access common websites

    --EDIT--
    sorry about all the [dot] s but after i tried to post the forums informed me that i can't put "links" in my posts unless i've posted 15 times or more :-(
    -- --

    i use IE 6.0
    Windows XP service pack 2 and all current updates.
    I also use Adelphia high speed cable internet acess.


    Alright. So today i suddenly can't just type in google[dot]com, hotmail[dot]com, microsoft[dot]com and yahoo[dot]com. Those are just a few sites that if i try and type in the address and hit enter my browser will just perpetually load until it "fails". But if i instead click on the link to hotmail[dot]com in my favorites then it will load no problem. Or if i start to type google i'll get the little drop down box of google[dot]com addresses of recent searches that i've done and then if i select one of those i can access google. from there i can search any other site, click the link and i will connect. This is the only problem i have. I can still download anything i want and play games etc. I haven't installed any new software in months and i haven't changed any settings. Something similar like this happened once and i uninstalled mcaffee virus scan and it fixed my problem all together. I uninstalled it this time and things were good for about an hour but then it all went right back. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      In the meantime, Opera, Firefox, MyIE2, or any other alternate browser is a good choice.
