Anyone know how to resolve --> msxml3.dll error '80072ee7' The server name or addres

I have five websites with my hosting service. I built them all with FrontPage. Several months ago, my web host removed FrontPage extensions from its servers. That meant I could longer access and open web files for editing.

Last Friday (2/6), I downloaded MS Expression Web 4. After logging on to the host servers to do some editing, I began to get this error on my web browser for ALL of my sites --

msxml3.dll error '80072ee7', The server name or address could not be resolved, /LM/W3SVC/9/ROOT/global.asa, line 66

On three of the sites, I never opened a single file. Yet the error occurred.

Has anyone seen this before? All my webs were working fine until I accessed the server with Expression Web 4. I hope there's a fix out there somewhere.

ANSWER -- The problem was that someone hacked my hosting account and uploaded a malicious global.asa file that shut down my website's ASP pages. The install of EW was only coincidental to the real problem. So if this ever happens to you, consider the possibility that a malicious upload could be the culprit.
