In that case. Bring you internet security settings to the lowest possible to see if you get a page to come up. If you dont then make sure you are dialing the correct to your isp also check with them to see if they have another number and try that one. If it doesn't work then it is your IE that is not working correctly. unistall IE and reinstall to see if that correct your problem.

If your running win95/98. I assume your on an older system? But, that is not always true. Anyway, the simplest way is to do a clean install, but if you can not back up your stuff do a masking (installing he OS over your current version). This will reset IE default. You will not loss any info, but if you do this enough ti,es, it can become bothersom. If you can get Norton System Works 2003 or 2004, it will autoinstall IE 6.0 or better. Goodluck.

If your ISP is not a trusted site you will never be able to browse the internet ! See if it is in your trusted sites in IE.

Try deleting temp files and cookies. What type of connection are u using. It may be your network stack or even a hijacked browser.

since you have dialup, I would definitely take a look at your network stack, TCP/IP may be corrupt.

1. Is there a firewall between the PC and the Internet interface. i.e. Norton Security, if so disable temporarily and try internet connection
2. Make sure you have the correct DNS address, it always a good idea to put them in statically.
3. If this PC is not stand-alone in depends on a gateway for internet access make sure the Gateway addtress and DNS address point to the Gateway device also check your sunbet mask.
4. There shouldn't be any reason to touch the internet security in explorer settings by default the should be fine.
5. In Tool->Internet Options->connections

for dailup:
a)select the dialup account and click on setting verify in automatic configuration that automatically dectect settings is selected.
for LAN :
select LAN setting and verify in automatic configuration that automatically dectect settings, if using proxy verify that the correct address is used.
