Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Just a few days ago, all of a sudden I could not view cerain websites. I get the message: The website could not be found. I contacted the website owner and they have said that it loads just fine on their end. I can go to yahoo.com, but when I try to search for anything, that error page comes up. I have tried so many things, I've run out of ideas. I've reset the default settings on internet options, upgraded to IE 8, changed the MTU settings, tried to do the "repair LAN" and it says it cannot clear the cache, tried to clear the cache manually, etc. etc. Any ideas?
Sounds like you have a Malware infection.
I suggest that you go to http://www.spybot.de download and install spybot. Then run it.
Reboot the Pc and then update and run it again. Keep doing this until it finds no issues.
Test to see if you can get to the website. Do you have any other PC’s you could test from your location? It could be that you are suffering from DNS poisoning, but I would rule out spyware 1st.
Do you have a virus checker? if not then try http://free.avg.com/
