Can't Browse to Yahoo
I have a PC (XP Pro) in our network that can't get to http://www.yahoo.com.
This is their default website and this problem revealed itself today after
years of no such issues. Other websites are clearly accessible. I've also
plugged their network drop into another PC and it was able to resovle
yahoo.com.

I've tried deleting the cookies and temp internet files, but still nothing.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

AJ

Re: Can't Browse to Yahoo
Hi,
1. Try clearing the DNS Cache
Start> Run> cmd [enter]
ipconfig /flushdns
Then clear the Temporary Internet Files again, clear the History and
restart.

2. Is the Internet Shortcut for yahoo.com damaged? Does typing in
www.yahoo.com make a difference?

3. Check the HOSTS file. Is yahoo in the HOSTS file?
Make sure that Windows is showing hidden files and is
not hiding file extensions for known file types then check for a HOSTS file
at [C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc] Open the HOSTS file with notepad. If
there are entries you wish to disable, you can put the pound sign (#) in
front an entry to disable it. Then File> Save. Or you can rename the HOSTS
file to HOSTS.OLD to disable it.
More on the HOSTS file at http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm and
http://www.accs-net.com/hosts/

Hope this helps,
Don
