Im Ian Mayol from Philippines. Im just new here and i need help.

U see i have this 10 sets of computers the other 1 is a server which is already connected to internet using PPPoE Broand Band Connection. I already enable the Internet Connection Sharing for the home network and configured the workstations/client PC. All of them can now access the internet but some websites wont open like yahoomail.com, hotmail.com, friendster.com etc. but the yahoo.com itself and the other links/websites can be viewed i can even connect to mirc and other instant messenger.

I tried pinging the website that wont open in internet explorer and ive got a full response. The only problem is that it wont viewed.

Im using WinXP Pro both Server and Client. Is there any option that i have to enable?

Pls. if you have any idea how to resolve kindly help me.

Thanks. Ian

Hello Ian- welcome! :)

2 things come to mind:

1. Check all of your computers for viruses and spyware/malware/adware; these programs can cause the connection problems you're experiencing. Read through some of the other threads in this forum for instructions for downloading, installing, and running the following (free) spyware removal utilities:

Ad Aware
SpyBot Search & Destroy

2. Check your security-related settings in your Internet Options control panel.Make sure your security levels aren't too restrictive, that you don't have unwanted entries in your "Restricted Sites", etc. You can try lowering the security levels temporarily and see if that helps; if not, my bet would be that it's a spyware-related problem.


I tried the ad aware software including the hijackthis. below are the resulting log. pls help me with this... thnx so much

OK, I'm not as much of an expert on all of the various malware programs out there as some of our other members are (I use Linux primarily, so I'm immune to this stuff ;) ), but the log looks pretty clean to me except for all the Yahoo toolbar/serch/etc. crud.

Have you done a virus scan?
Have you run Ad Aware and SpyBot?
If so, what did they have to say?

Also- what about your security settings; have you checked those yet?
