Open a command window and ...
It helped me.
Ok, this is the strangest thing I have had happen while online...
All of a sudden on Friday I couldn't access Yahoo.com, where I get my emails.
I can't even access the Yahoo.com home page.
deleted cookies and temp files
ran all adaware and virus scans
added Yahoo.com to my allow list
sent a ping with 4 sent and 4 returned: 0 lost
had friends send me links and tried to click on them
I have also done 2 system restores and it did not come back.
But, I can use Yahoo messenger just fine.
And, I have talked to someone that lives 2 blocks from me and has the same ISP and she can use it just fine.
I have tried using IE, Crazy Browser and Firefox and get the same result:
The page cannot be displayed.
This is the only site on the web I can't access! How strange!
Any advise aside from doing all those things I mentioned above?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
OH, I use XP w/SP2 and have NOT done any updates for at least 2 weeks.
