unable to connect to the internet

Hi hope someone can help me. I am unable to connect to Tiscali broadband. I am using outlook express and this gives the message unable to connect to host pop.tiscali. With IE6 it directs me to an unable to connect page with the refresh box greyed out. Briefly in the address bar at the bottom it flashes c:/windows/system32/shdoclc.exe before loading the blank page. (This is the only bit of the message I get time to read).
I have run adaware, spybot, spysweeper, spyguard and cws shredder and nothing is found.
I am connecting through a router and the lights status indicates that the connection is established.
My home page is about:blank.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Has the broadband never worked? About:blank home page is normally a hijack.

hi, went through all threads and got nowhere so ended up formatting hard drive and reinstalling windows XP.
