IE 6 has been working fine for several years on my Win2k machine. All of a sudden a customer reports that when she clicks IE first thing in the morning IE will open the window but just sit at "connecting" for several minutes before actually loading the homepage(or requisit clicked hyperlink).... that same morning the very same thing happened on my Win2k machine. I have found a couple of other users on the net who have had the same problem but no one can seem to find a cure for this.
Hopefully it's ok to link to another user's problem as their's are as accurately described as mine without me having to re-type everything they have typed....
and this link is a bit more detailed as to exactly what's going on
For me the solution of using Mozilla is fine but for my customer it's not a viable option ...any other help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I don't even have a starting point to work on this problem it's so strange. There is no spyware or viruses.... I'm kept up to date with Symantec 10 corportate, Adaware and Hijackthis. None have found a single instance of concern.
