I've recently been having problems with IE (v. 5.5) loading some of the websites I frequently visit. Sometimes it'll work fine, but half the time they'll take me to another website, namesdirect.com. As if the website I was trying to visit didn't exist. Also, when trying to access Google.com, I get a "Page cannot be displayed, cannot find server or DNS error" message.
Strangely, I don't have these problems when I use AOL's browser. I'm afraid to update to IE6, because the last time I tried, when I restarted, Windows would not start correctly and I had to do a restore.
I'm running WinME (no surprise there) and my machine has been factory-restored several times because of various problems.
Any help is greatly appreciated. :)
