Internet Explorer Error Message

In the past 2 weeks Internet Explorer 6.0 has started giving me error messages after I try to login to websites saying it can't open or display that particular site. All other sites are okay, it's only the ones that I try to login to. Any ideas as to why it's doing this?

Have you checked your Privacy (including cookies) and Security settings from Tools>Internet Options?

I've looked but it all looks alright as far as I can tell. Can't figure out what could be causing it.

Is this the same using your other browser?

I don't have another browser, I'm using flatmates computer

Pity. I have both IE6 and Mozilla installed. If one doesn't work (and its usually IE) then I use the other. Good way of checking where the fault lies.
You could try a repair of IE6. VoG has given a link for this in this other PCA thread

I've tried all repair methods suggested and there's still no change in the situation.

Hi sorceror7374, have you tried using another browser? I use Mozilla click here and Internet Explorer.

Like yourself all my Internet Explorer settings seem ok and yet I have problems getting onto some sites.

Are you sure that you have not installed any type of program that stops you accessing some sites that run ie: macromedia flash.

Have you also checked that your firewall is not blocking out some sites.

No, nothing new has been added to my system recently. It's not just a few sites, it's any site that I try to logon to. Checked flatmates IE settings and they all match mine. I'll try to install a different browser and see if that does any better.

It may have something to do with the latest Microsoft security update. The fact that it is your flatmates PC, not yours, may now be presenting some
problems as no doubt the PC is registered in the other persons name.

No, it can't be that....he has a totally different internet connection and his own operating system. Our systems are completely unrelated and nothing is shared between them.
