Hi all, bit of a mystery for you all here. I'm trying to help a friend sort out a problem he's having with IE6. He's running XP Pro connecting at 576k ADSL and can get connected ok but after browsing a few pages he only sees "page not found" errors, try refreshing etc etc.
Sometimes Google (homepage) will not show either. He can't stay on pages long enough to get any widows updates either (I know it's not the Denial of Service attack).
Now here's what I've tried so far:
ran Adaware/Spybot/Diagnose Windows
deleted all offline content/cookies
checked for any new apps being run at startup
turned off ZoneAlarm
removed then re-installed IE6 (which seemd to work initially)
finally tried formatting and still it''s the same
I also told him to call his ISP to check the servers are ok at their end. Their only suggestion was to turn off the Norton firewall (news to me they had installed one .
Any help/suggestions/advice/links would be as always greatly appreciated.
