I get " the page cannot be displayed" when I open up IE 6.0. I cannot connect to any web sites.  But it I update mc afee anti virus it connects and updates is there something wrong with IE.   I tried to reinstall IE 6 from a CD but it comes up and tells me
 that windows update has to restart the  computer to finish a previous install.  But restarting does not help,
