Hi All,
Need some help from the pro's
1. suddenly receiving (like others I hear) 403 error in I.E. 6 on sites I
had no prior problems connecting to and the error is increasing - what the
heck is the access control list?

    "You were denied access because access denied by access control list."

2. Some of my graphics on various web pages being replaced by the all
famous red picture placeholders even though show pictures options are
selected.  Temp files/cookies etc all have been cleared

3. where is the option to repair IE 6 in xp pro?

This is driving me nuts - pls help

You can reinstall IE without the need to uninstall it first.

To reinstall Internet Explorer:

Go to Start > Run and type in:  rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 C:\windows\inf\ie.inf
and hit "enter".
Then open IE > Tools > Options > Program tab, and click on "Reset Web Settings" and click "Apply".

Note:  This assumes XP is installed on your "C' partition.  If XP is installed on a partition other than "C", use the correct partition letter when performing this reinstall of IE.

1. Forbidden: access denied by access control list, help!

Whenever I try to open up Media Guide or Radio Tuner
through WMP 7.01 I get the message:
You were denied access because:
access denied by access control list.
Anybody know how i could fix this. I use AOL (for my sins)
and I can get these things through the web but not media
player for some reason. I reinstalled WMP but no joy. Any
help appreciated as this is bugging me,
