Alright helpfull people. Uhm i am having a problem accessing the web, my modem connects but the amount of data (on a 48k dialup)is measured in hundreds of bytes so it always times out. So far I have tried reinstalling win 98 (cant remember what ver.)reinstalling driver and different driver. IE repair tool, initially this told me sccrun.dll was missing and hshtml.tlb was an old ver. replaced those from another computer (?. I also used registry cleaning software. Etc.... now it is worse as it is now telling me the number for my ISP (virgin.net) is not recognised and i know it the number and phone line and cables are ok as i have used another computer on them. I am close to reformatting harddrive.
