Access denied by access control list

Hits 26345 | Created 2007-05-24 | Modified 2007-05-24

My wife called my to the computer as there was an odd message on the screen.



Forbidden

You were denied access because:

Access denied by access control list.

What?? My status:

- Wireless connection on laptop working fine still

- Firefox working fine still

- Microsoft Internet Explorer showing this error for all pages

A quick Google search will reveal a lot of pages and a lot of solutions to this problem, but, as is often the case, the same message is produced by the lovely IE browser for a lot of different reasons. In my case it was actually a lot easier than the suggestions I found on the net, which included:

- Reinstall IE

- Do a system restore point roll back

- Create a new ISP connection

- Various IP address changes

- Router config changes

In fact, in my case, the settings in my wife's profile for Internet Explorer hadn't been updated for a long time (as she never uses IE) and had incorrect LAN setup.

For me simply going (in IE) to Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings and checking 'Detect automatically' and unchecking any other boxes, solved the problem instantly.
