Hi,
I am having the strangest problem connecting to https://www.experts-exchange.com from my Vista notebook.  From my WinXP workstation at home, no problem.  From my work PC and work notebook (also running XP Pro), no problem.  I get the following error message "https://www.experts-exchange.com" is not set up to establish a connection on port "World Wide Web service (HTTP)" with this computer.  I've sort of ruled out router problems, since I can connect to the site - just from one particular notebook, which happens to be the only one running the Vista OS.  Has anyone else had an experience like this?  Notebook is an HP DV2660 SE.  I've played with the browser settings (reduced security settings, etc.), but I just cannot seem to connect at all using this notebook.  I'm stumped...  Does anyone have any suggestions?
