I am running XP SP3 and using a dial up connection. Suddenly was unable to display any pages. The owner account worked OK, so I deleted the old user account and made a new one. It worked twice and now neither account can display pages. We are connected to the internet. When the page is trying to load I've caught a quick view down on the status bar but all I saw were the words 'frame' and 'dnserror'. Any ideas? Thank you.

1/22/10 - much more work done on this but I still can't get it to work. The problems lies in Internet options - under connections for the dial up (and same problem with LAN settings) in that the proxy server boxes are getting checked when I try to open IE. If I remove those checks everything works. But I sure don't want to have to go in every time and uncheck the boxes. How can I make them remain unchecked permanently, and what is causing them to get rechecked everytime I open IE? Mozilla Firefox works, but I don't like it and want IE. Oh, and this is IE7, and I hate to try IE8 when I've heard bad stuff about it.

Please, anybody got any ideas? Thank you much!
