    Internet Site Freeze

    Using Mindspring dial-up and I.E., my computer will only go to one web site — Troma.com
    When I type in any web address, I either get troma.com or “the page cannot be found”
    No viruses have been detected. I ran Stinger-1-2003.
    I have deleted temp files and unchecked “web addresses” for content autocomplete
    Help!

        I downloaded Ad-Aware, but it didn’t detect my problem.

      It sounds as though your DNS settings in your TCP/IP properties are not correct,
      go to your dial up connection, right-click the Mindspring icon, go to properties, select the networking tab and highlight you tcp/ip connection and click properties….

      Once here you should be able to see you dns server settings, call Mindspring and verify what your settings should be

      It seems I have a virus that redirects all of my web traffic to this single site. My e-mail server is working, but I cannot connect with any web sites other than Troma.com
