Cannot view webpage

I have a windows 98 machine but for some reason i cannot now view any web page.

My computer will dial and connect to MSNfree and it says connected, but i cannot view any webpage at all, I just get a blank white error screen.

I have cleared the cookies and history and set all internet settings to default but still no luck.

Any ideas please?

Try this Winsock fix:

http://downloads.subratam.org/WinsockFix.zip

Download, unzip and run.

Restart when finished and test.

Try a previous registry also. Use a date that you did not have the problem

Boot the PC
Click rapidly on {F8} button until you get the dos screen.
From the c:\ prompt type cd windows
Type cd command
Type scanreg /restore
Choose a registry date that worked previously

What is your Home Page set as?

Control Panel > Internet Options > "General" tab.
