when clicking the IE icon i get a screen come up with a box in it telling me that " no connection to the internet is currently available"two buttons are shown.One to work offline ,and one to try again.On clicking "try again".this page cannot be displayed comes up.However.if I go to outlook express first I can connect as normal and also open internet explorer.This has only started happening in the last couple of days .Can anyone tell me what has gone wrong ,and what I can do about it.Thanks.

if you have xp or me try a system restore to a few days ago when all was well.

or check in IE tools/internet options/connections "always dial my default connection" maybe.
