Hello,

I am having trouble connecting to websites via Internet Explorer 8. I can get on Google sometimes, but when I try to go to Yahoo or Mail to check email, I get the 'Internet Explorer Cannot Connect to This Page' (or similar) message. I also get 'Oops! Internet Explorer Could Not Find (website here)'. What's going on? I've tried resetting and all that and nothing at all helps. I had a malware problem recently. Could this be what's wrong?

Thanks,

Michelle

Hi,

try this 1

Right click on the "Internet Explorer" icon --->click on "Properties"

Delete temporary files, cookies etc by going to "General" tab --> click on "Delete"

button.

Then click on "Advanced" tab ---> click on "Restore advanced settings" button

and on "Reset..." button ---> then click on OK.

Then click on start ---> run --> cmd

type this command

ipconfig /flushdns and press enter.
