I can't access websites. I'm even using Firefox now, hoping it would help. It didn't. When in IE or Firefox, I do a search from yahoo, google, etc. I get results back, but when I try to access sites, I sit and look at the loading pages forever or they just never load. I've gotten the you don't have access or permission to view this site, no page found, can't find server, etc. I can't get on the basic sites. ebay, yahoo groups, foodnetwork, delta, etc. What's weird is I can send and receive email. I'm on earthlink.
The one thing I have found and can't figure out is under my IE tools, options, security tab, there is a TON of stuff, sites, and IP addresses listed under the "restricted sites" section. I have not put these in there and don't know how they got there. I thought maybe outlook put them there when I used the junk email, restrict sender option. But I KNOW I didn't add ebay, etc. Every time I've gone in to delete the restricted sites, I have to individually click on each one. It's a lot. Then I apply changes, hit okay and get out. I've rebooted, etc. When I get back into IE, their still there. It's the only thing I can think might be causing my problem.
If you need me to hijackthis, I can. PLEASE help me. I have so much research to do and can't get anything done.
Thanks for any help or suggestions. Tortmom
