Default Need Help, an Ideas

I posted a picture and comments on another forum. I got some negetive responses, one from in Japan, and one from UK. Within a day or two, I can no longer open my pictures or web site, or single web pages I use to post pictures. I have called my domain host, no problems, I have called AOL, and the tech could not find anything wrong. I explained farther, the tech asked permission to access the web site through my computer, and agreed there was a problem, but did not know what and sent the complaint farther up the latter. I am still waiting to see what they find. Now I could go to Internet Explorer, and view all pages no problem, I told the tech this, they went and looked and agreed. But now today, I can't access through Internet Explorer, and now I can not access my FTP site.
I downloaded a program from the Kim Kamando site, it appears I have a registry problem. After all my photos, or web pages, is ( invalid registry Path )

Has anyone ever had this problem or heard of it?

AFAIK AOL browser is a not the original IE, but tweaked for their use.

Download Firefox from and try that. Also, try to renew your IP (shut down modem for few minutes), perhaps the IP that has been handled to you dynamically is blocked as spam ip.

Once I had similar problems and it was found to be a failing ADSL modem.

PS. what you do on this site has no effect on your browser or net connection. Only thing I can think of is that your linked images' server might have bandwith overflow because of the views from this site.

Pekka is correct - although FireFox is a better solution overall for web browsing than anything AOL has every shoddily knocked together IMHO.

I have had problems simialr to that, and going to the command prompt [Start --> Run...--> CMD <return>] and entering the command

has helped. Clears the local DNS cache that soemtimes gets a bit messed up - or so I was told by someone, anyway.

You should get a screen with te hfollowing on it once done:

Otherwise, do the normal tricks of getting good antispyware software, good av software and generally taking care with what you download and run.

Antispyware bits:
MS Antispyware
Adaware Personal Edition
Spybot Search and Destroy

I'd only ever used one free AV solution, and that is Free AV - possibly the best free antivirus solution I have ever seen. No license gumph, no 'I have found a virus, but you have to register to remove it" crap, just a good, light, powerful AV tool.
Clicky fo' Free AV

Woopsy, bit of an IT security based rant there. Don't mind me
