Hello everyone, and thank you for looking into this problem. I work in the web industry and need to use various browsers to vailidate the sites we create. So, unfortunately, I cannot just abandon Microsoft products and install another browser to remedy the issue.
To clarify my problem with IE7... It is very similar to the previous user's, however, it's not just the homepage that won't load... it's any address that I type in. My homepage is simply http://www.google.com
and the resulting address that I receive after starting IE7 up is "res://webhelper.dll/dnserror.htm#http://www.google.com" The IE7 tab for this window says "cannot find server" and I get the all too familiar "The page cannot be displayed" message.
After doing some research, my only guesses are that this has something to do with my registry or firewall. I am sending this message on a 3 1/2 year old Sony Vaio laptop that I flawlessly upgraded to IE7 about 2 months ago. I am experiencing the problem on a HP "a1510n" desktop that was purchased from a retail store about 6 months ago. If this problem cannot be fixed at this time, how do I simply revert back to the old IE? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
