Running WXP Home 1.3gig - 256sdram - 40gigHD
Internet connection is dialup 56kbps
Cannot connect to server in IE6. However I can connect to server using OE6 then go back out to IE quite successfully.
Error Message in IE6 is:- "No connection to internet is currently available. to view internet content that has been saved on your computer, click Work Off Line.
Click Try Again to attempt to connect."
This has occurred in the last two days no downloads or major mods in this period.
Checked all connections - appears OK
Have done restore but problem remains
Cumulative patch for IE Q323759 has been downloaded some time ago.
