How can I have internet access on my laptop but on

This is a new one on me. As of about an hour ago I only have partial access on my 2 desktop pc's but all ok on my laptop as I type. All that has changed is a software update on the desktops, this was automatic, so no idea what it was, from microsoft is the only one i allow auto update. What must I do to get full internet access back? I have email on both ok as well.

If I do a sytem restore will that wipe out the update??

That was quick and thank you. I think it was a java update as that has just popped at bottom of screen on laptop. Needless to say I said no to update.

What is this java??

Thanks for that, it looks asif it has played havoc with my network settings, after all thetime i spent setting it up. What do I have to adjust to get things back to normal, apart from a system restore??

not a happy bunny with java. Is it that important? Can I sut it off??
