    I installed wordpress mu and can see the blog, but when using IE I am UNABLE to get into admin section. I click the link for site admin (mysite.com/wp-admin/) but it hangs for awhile and then I get the message: internet explorer can not display the web page.

    This is odd because I just installed it 2 hours earlier and i was able to get into admin. but i had to delete that install of it because I had chosen "sub domains" but my host (lunarpages) said they dont allow shared host to use wild cards. so i deleted the wordpree mu and the mysql database and redid the install. now IE can not view the admin page. BUT if i use firefox, i can get into the admin page. what is the deal with that?

    * No, i did not enter "www" on install
    * and it just worked on prior install, but now wont work.

    the htaccess file has all of this in it.

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    
    #uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/$ index.php [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !.*wp-content/plugins.*
    RewriteRule ^(.*/)?files/(.*) wp-content/blogs.php?file=$2 [L]
    
    # add a trailing slash to /wp-admin
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^.*/wp-admin$
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ $1/ [R=301,L]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule . - [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(wp-.*) $2 [L]
    RewriteRule  ^([_0-9a-zA-Z-]+/)?(.*\.php)$ $2 [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]
    
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    <Files async-upload.php>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </Files>
    </IfModule>

    should i just delete & reinstall again?
