It seems I'm not the only one that has experienced this problem...
Mine started with about 3 websites that refused to load, they all came up
with the same error (I've attached a DOC file to show).
Some show trying to download from either the DNS or 404, but all are failing

Went through all the forums, boards and microsoft's own knowleadge base and
followed most of the suggestions - but it all failed.

Now I know it not the computer, mainly because I borrowed my father's laptop
and the same thing happened to it.
And I've also downloaded Firefox, to see if it can see those websites. But
it completely timed-out.....
So the question is...
Is this a DNS server problem ....?

attempt to find the website using Firefox, the browser times out before
loading. I'm quite certain that my browser settings are OK as most all
load just fine but there's obviously some setting wrong somewhere. I've

firewall so I believe my system is bug free. I've even disabled the
long enough to try bmo.com with no success.
Thanks for your suggestions. Any more thoughts?
