What isp are you using {who is you Internet provider}

If it has just started it may be a problem there end so I would wait and see if everything is OK tomorrow

Still let us know who your isp is

To get to this open outlook express/tools at the top of page/accounts,if you have an account just go into properties,if not click add and fill boxes

Hiya baldydave,
I am still struggling with this,I do not fully understand your insructions. My account is NTL or should I say ntlworld.com as it was before virgin media.
