XP Pro i.e. 6 HTTP:/// page.

By mccarthysmith ·
O/S Win XP Pro IE 6 fully updated. To explain precisely:
Using a T.P.Application like Webferret, I get: HTTP:/// AND NOTHING ELSE.
Try and alter HTTP:/// in any way produces
"res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm#http:///" The Properties of this produce:
General (URL Properties)
Cannot find server;
Unknown Protocol;
Type not availiable;
Connection: Not encrypted;
Address:: res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm#http:/// ;
Size: Not available;
Created: not available;
Modified not available;
Certificates:none
(I have a .JPG of above).
I have done all sorts of registry searches without identifying anything.
In Internet URL, Tools,Internet Options, Advanced I even tried Restore
Defaults and unchecked 'show friendly URLs'.
I am at a total loss at this point as a lot of WWW addresses 'default' to a http:/// page,clicking continuously, locking all open Apps, and only closing with clicking 'end task' in Win Task Manager.

Check your Internet setup, be sure you have checked "obtain IP address automatically." You seem to be experiencing an DNS problem. If your computer is configured correctly, than the problem is with your ISP. Are you on dial-up or broadband? Are you using a router? As the Command Prompt, type IPCONFIG /all. Try pinging your address, your ISP DNS Server addresses. If you recieved a reply, uninstall/reinstall Inernet Explorer.

Repair or Reinstall IE in Windows XP:

While you are logged on as an administrator, click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Locate the appropriate registry subkey, right-click the IsInstalled (REG_DWORD) value, and then click Modify. To reinstall only the Internet Explorer 6 browser component on Windows XP, use the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{89820200-ECBD-11cf-8B85-00AA005B4383}

To reinstall only Outlook Express 6 on Windows XP, use the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\{44BBA840-CC51-11CF-AAFA-00AA00B6015C}

Change the value data from 1 to 0, and then click OK.
Quit Registry Editor, and then download and install Internet Explorer 6. For information about how o download and install Internet Explorer 6, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Probably OK. I 'diverted' somewhere causing a complete XP re-installation. Had current Powerquest Drive Image which brought me back to square one with original problem. Cold feet after that!
