Problem with being Locked out of Web Pages in MSIE6.0

I have recently upgraded to MSIE6.0; I am using a 233 Mhz Pentium 2 with 256 Mb of ram and Windows 98SE and am using a 56k modem in Dial up Networking.

Since upgrading to IE6.0 I can no longer access my Home Page (http:\\www.tiscali.co.uk). I get a "This page is not available error". There are also other web pages that I can no longer access and which were all ok prior to my update.
Are there some settings within IE6.0 which are blocking me out or is it something entirely different ?

I can access other Web pages with no problems.

Regards

Doug Clayton

either right click your E6 icon and select properties or from IE6 select tools and option, check the secuity and privacy setting.

also try this, search your hard drive for a file called "hosts" (no extention, not hosts.sam, but just hosts)
if found, open in notepad and delete the entries in it

Many thanks for your solution. I had spent several hours checking privacy and security tick boxes and looking through the MS Knowledgebase without success.
Following up the stevenlewis comment it took only a minute or two to solve the problem.
I am well impressed, thanks again for your help
