Can't access internet - any ideas where to look Story is : Using internet explorer running Vista Home Premium. Person tries to open internet, pop up window comes up and person clicks "Always block"! He can't remember what the window said just that it comes up every now and then. Now no internet access but can access MSN so no problem with connection. Can anyone tell me how to unblock. Standard "web page cannot be displayed". Anyone help?

If its Windows Live OneCare In advanced firewall settings you can choose the programs to block and allow, try allowing anything you don't think should be blocked.

Haha - it's meant to be a gekko. Back to the issue at hand - any ideas on how I can unblock it so IE can run? Oh yeah did I mention it's running Nortons Internet Security? Going to remove it - waste of time I know.

Tried that already. Added IE to the list made sure it was not blocked but still nothing. Account is with Farmside and they said it's outside their field of expertise as all the settings for IE were correct.
