How do I get the web to work right?

Question

Lately when I type an address into my address bar I don't get anything. I just time out. If I select something from my favorites, or click on a web link, I am redirected.

Any idea what's up? I'm running IE 6.0 and have updated to SP2.

This is a good question but I would need to know where you are being directed to give you a better answer My best guess is you have either accidentally changed the security settings in IE to a very high level, that's an easy fix but going through the options menu or you have a virus that is blocking your ability to go online My guess is the second one based on the fact you said you were being redirected A lot of viruses use a redirect feature to send you to pages you dont intend to go to One place that people often complain about being sent to is about:blank If you see that, that's not good It's a problem that can be fixed but that's a sign of a very nasty virus called Cool Web Search If you have an anti virus program, run it immediately.
