Access prohibited through ISP using Internet Explorer 6
Posted on 2004-10-24
When trying to load any web page from IE 6, I get an error message from my ISP (in Portuguese; I'm in Mozambique) saying the page could not be retrieved, reason: access prohibited.
When my wife logs on to her side of our Windows XP, she can open it and use it fine. The problem happened after I returned from the US, having used Netzero during the summer. IE has not worked since for my regular ISP here. Don't know what settings it may have changed.
I can also use the built-in IE when using AOL here through a TCP/IP connection. In general, I've been using Opera for a browser, but would prefer the availability of IE.
