'This page cannot be displayed' Why is this and what to do?"

Question

Hi

When I fisrt got this PC I installed AOL 6.

Since then I uninstalled it & now use tiscali.

Since uninstalling AOL I have been unable to get on certain websites, such as royalmail.com,freeserve.com & many others.

All I get is the "this page cannot be displayed" message, although I am still able to get on many other sites.

I have been told by several people it is a DNS problem, but no one seems to know how to rectify it!

Please Help!!! :-)
