    I just fixed this problem. Since it appeared to be a proxy related issue I
    took a look at the netsh command.
    (remember - The internet options app showed that no proxy server was

    1. Start a command prompt running with administrator privileges.
    2. type netsh
    3. type winhttp
    4. type reset proxy
    5. type exit
    6. close the command window.

    Apparently something was corrupt but who knows what it was!

    Are you able to access the site using ?
    Rich, Aug 4, 2008
  4. Yes I can. From which I deduce that it is not the 'content' of the site that
    is causing the problem.

    The error is
    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage, this after a time out of
    several seconds.

    Try running: ipconfig /flushdns from an admin command prompt.

  6. Rich,
    No-go for me, still same symptom. I have also been in the netsh command
    area - resetting everything that has that as a option. As you observed it
    seems like a 'proxy' is in there somewhere.

    Does work?

    Not sure but maybe - if it does than it's a DNS issue and IE is not
    getting that address - if it does not them something is blocking the
    reply from their server.

    ECN is turned off by default in Vista but somehow got turned on.

    hope it works for you

    That was my problem. I still wonder why the only site I had problem with was
    the equifax site?
