I could & I arrived here "Welcome to Pearson MyLabsPlus", which is a gateway to "El Paso college". (IP address 22.214.171.124). Normally I'd just give you the url using the IP address but it wont work as its a secured link.
My guess is that either your browser is damaged (by malware which is redirecting you though an alternate gateway which doesn't have the DNS record) or your ISP's dns simply doesn't know this URL.
Does the same thing happen if you use a different browser like Chrome for instance?
Try to reset internet explorer.
To reset Internet Explorer settings
Close all Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.
Reopen Internet Explorer.
Click the Tools button, and then click Internet options.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset. ...
In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
Temporarily change your DNS settings.
Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button , and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type adapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties.
4.Now look at the bottom of the screen you will see preferred DNS press the "Use the following DNS server address" and in the first preferred enter 126.96.36.199 and the second enter 188.8.131.52
This is the IP address of the Google DNS servers which will replace your ISP's one. I have tested Google and it knows your El Paso college gateway IP.
Once you have done that OK it and either do a START>RUN>CMD>ipconfig /renew
or reboot the computer.
Try this fix and if it works you can safely leave the settings as is. It wont make any difference to you normal browsing. If not just re access the settings and click the obtain DNS server automatically.
Go to google.com to use their search. I could tell you more, but I need to know which browser you are using. I recommend installing Google Chrome and set it as 'default' search engine when installing if asked. You can download Chrome here, it installs itself: https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/#brand=CHMB&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-sk&utm_medium=ha
Chrome is unlikely to be the issue.
Odds are something is blocking it. Spyware Doctor (PcTools)
is know to block Chrome.
Do you have that loaded or something similar? Norton is also
known to block it.
So does Kaspersky Internet Security.
Start by checking your other programs.
Disable your malware software see if Chrome works then.
If it does not, the I hate to say it, but also briefly
disable your anti-virus software see if Chrome works then.
If either of those programs are the issue, see if there are upgrades or do a
search regard that specific program and Chrome.
You may end up having to change to a different security
program that plays nice with Chrome.
This is google's version of internet explorer. Download and install it, then once it is installed, use Google Chrome to sign into Yahoo Mail. I believe it will let you do so, and if so, you know it is IE, so either stick with Chrome (much much better), or you would need to fully reset IE.
