Cannot connect to web site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I cannot use IE 7 on Vista to connect to

    www.sharedview.com

    or to

    https://connect.microsoft.com/site/sitehome.aspx?SiteID=94&wa=wsignin1.0

    The error screen says

    Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
      Most likely causes:
        You are not connected to the Internet.
        The website is encountering problems.
        There might be a typing error in the address.

    On the same Vista PC, I can successfully connect using FireFox.  On a different PC, I can connect using IE 6 running XP.

    On my Vista machine, I have tried reducing IE's security level down to medium.  I also added www.sharedview.com to the trusted sites.  Neither of these helped.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • I fixed the problem.

    A little searching lead me to

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/926431

    which suggested deleting the browsing history.

    That did the trick.

    Strange, because I could connect to the site yesterday....

    Hope this helps anyone else with the same problem.
