I receive an error msg saying that IE cannot find the server.  Even when I have accessed the internet using Firefox I try to bring up IE and still receive the same msg.  I have tried to flush all caches and have reloaded IE, uninstalled CA (I don't use the firewall, only the virus checker but uninstalled it anyway), tried a system restore to the earliest point possible.

I had this situation with a client machine and IE7. After looking at obvious things for a short time, I uninstalled IE7 (which returned the machine to IE6), re-started, and re-installed IE7. All was well after that. I was not able to determine what was the root cause, but the solution was simple. ... T

Hello Snoozegirl,

1. Reset the Maximum Transmission Unit in the registry

2. If no joy, you may need to register some dll files
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q281679&sd=tech
1. Quit all programs that are running.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded" message, click OK.

If using Vista and you get an error, run regsvr32.exe from an elevated command prompt. To get an elevated command prompt, right-click on the "Command Prompt" shortcut and select "Run as Administrator".

If this does not resolve the problem, repeat steps 2 through 4 for each of the following files (in step 3, replace Urlmon.dll with each of the file names below):

Shdocvw.dll
Actxprxy.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Mshtml.dll
Browseui.dll
Shell32.dll

OR
Run this script if using IE6

Hope this helps!

You will se on my previous comment that in order to fix this problem I had to reformat the HD and load my OS again.  It was the only way I could fix the problem.
