Problem with Internet Explorer

10 pts.
Microsoft Windows
I work in a organisation which has Nt domain and we have quite a lot users, I got an issue where the user was able to use all the applications fine but when she was using the internet explorer it opens one page fine, but when we try to go to a different page it stucks, and it doesnt go any where. I tried to login as an administrator and it worked fine, so I thought of recreating the profile of user, but still the same problem even after recreating the profile. So I gave admin rights to the user to check, it worked fine, and its happening only with some users. Its not possible to give admin rights to all the user's. Can anyone please help me with this?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Do you have some type of proxy device or proxy server between your clients and the Internet? Some devices and servers, such as ISA, can limit the number of connections a user can have at one time.

If this isn’t the problem then I’m not sure what the issue would be.

    This sounds like a policy issue. I would guess that the group that these users belong to is either denied access or is not allowed access (depending on your security policy) to either the router, the name server, the proxy server or all of the above. I don't think this is a "limited number of concurrent users" issue on any certain device since you're apparently able to use that same equipment as a different user (administrator) from the same machine. I feel for you having to admin an NT domain - you should be crying for AD by now if you're not already. Even Samba would be better (and free if that's the reason the migration hasn't been made to AD yet). HTH

    If this was a policy issue wouldn't it block the same users all the time and not allow them to connect at all? The original question states that the user can connect to one site but when he attempts to connect to another site it is blocked or not allowed. Does IE give a specific error message when the site won't come up? Most proxy devices have their own error message when the user breaks a polciy setting on the proxy. Are all of the machines at the same patch level with regards to IE and XP?
