IE5.5 points to same IP address

By cruffin ·
Upgraded to IE5.5 sp1. Every time a try to type a URL, IE points to 127.0.0.1, and I get a DNS error then "Page cannot be displayed." Thoughts?

cruffin - Do you have an Anti Virus program. If so uncheck 1) Ad Blocking, or 2) Privacy, or 3) Seciruty. And after each uncheck return to URL. If individual unchecking does not do it, then Disable your AV and see what occurs. Your may of encountered a Browser problem as I did and your AV is Firewalling it. But Good Luck

127.0.0.1 is the IP address of the network card in your computer (in other words, the local loopback address) so I'm guessing there is a problem with your TCP/IP stack and it may need to be un-installed and re-installed.

However, before you do that, you might want to run IPCONFIG /all and see what network settings it reports. This problem could be something like a gateway address that is set to 127.0.0.1.

It makes a lot of difference whether this is a network connection or dialup so ifyou could add that information to your post, it will be easier to provide useful answers.
