Dial Up Networking connects perfectly and I can verify it by pinging and
ipconfig, BUT IE6, Firefox, Netscape, both Windows and Norton auto update all
cannot 'find' it. IE6 and Firefox give a page not available. Everything was
fine until about a week ago. I've run MS malware remover with no results. I
run Zone Alarm and SpyBot consistently. Any suggestions appreciated.

In ipconfig....is it reading 169....or 192....? In the meantime, run this
combo:

Run Ad-Aware SE, Spybot, CWShredder and HijackThis:

Note: Update the first two programs, once installed, before running.

I am, of course running zone alarm. IPconfig reports 4.226.xxx.105.
Until I get back on with the problem computer, I'm unable to load anything
that requires an active internet connection to update.
