:tazz: ;) :)

Hello,

I joined today because I need help. Starting this morning whenever I open IE (or any other IE type browsers) this is what I see instead of the page indicated in the address bar...

"If you can see this, it means that the installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory and replace this page.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Seeing this instead of the website you expected?
This page is here because the site administrator has changed the configuration of this web server. Please contact the person responsible for maintaining this server with questions. The Apache Software Foundation, which wrote the web server software this site administrator is using, has nothing to do with maintaining this site and cannot help resolve configuration issues.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Apache documentation has been included with this distribution.

You are free to use the image below on an Apache-powered web server. Thanks for using Apache!"

So far my Firefox browser is operating.

If anyone has any idea What the... is going on with the IE browser and knows how to fix this problem please help?????? :(

Thanks in advance for any help youcan offer in this matter. :(

Sincerely,

Diana Lee G.

P.S. Going to "Tools/Internet Options" is not the answer. It's still showing Google as my home page. My home page has not been changed. According to what shows in the address bar the browser is going to where ever it is being told to go...but what is ***SHOWING*** is not the web page I am on, but that Apache server page, like I posted up there.

For what it is worth here is what I see when I look at "View Sourse":

:tazz: P.S. To save others time and effort I'm adding that I downloaded the various suggested programs before posting about my problem. One of the programs I couldn't use because it requires Windows 2000. I tried the rest of them. I did get rid of over 500 megabites in my Temporary Internet Files folder, which was great but that did nothing to solve my problem. None of the other new programs detected anything. I already use Ad Aware. No help with what ever is on my PC causing the trouble. I had Avast Anti-Virus already installed, but the "Scan at Boot up" function has some how been disabled.

Any other suggestions or ideas as to What the... is going on with the IE browser would be appreciated since along with the IE problem I mentioned, when I attempt to access my Homestead account with my Firefox browser a necessary-in-order-to-view-the-pages-in-the-site plug-in now fails to download.

I thought of/tried reinstalling IE, but since I cannot access the internet w ith IE I cannot reinstall IE. The installation process requires connection to the internet and it uses IE thingies to access the internet and I cannot access the internet with any program that's like an IE program. See?

Anyway that was all to prevent anyone willing to offer advice from wasting their time suggesting I try things I already tried. I hope it helped. ;)
