Need more details about IE not working - just what is happening when you try and use it? And which browser is it - IE6 7 or 8

And sounds like it might be connected to your other problem - are you using your filters in all phone points?

Browser is IE7. Message is IE cannot connect to internet. I have had a lot of advice on how to fix this problem but none of it has worked.

Do a search for IE.inf then when found double click it

I don't know what to do when I double click IE.inf.

Sounds like a microfilter is degrading or dead. Try disconnecting everything to your phone sockets and try connecting again with one microfilter. Reconnect everything a stage at a time untill you get to the problem filter.

I had the computer in shop they reinstalled windows xp and IE was working. when I got home IE wasn't working.I can't download IE8 or anything else. I also tried to reset IE it didn't work.I have one new filter and nothing else connected to phoneline. I can't find windows\inf folder.

You do not need to look for folder. Just type in Run IE.inf then look for the file to double click on. Look for one thats not in the I386 folder to double click as I386 will be older version

Sorry been away for few days. Typed IE.inf couldn't find file, maybe I should get someone in to help me. thanks to all who tried to help.
