First check your connection (make sure nobody's pulled the plug).

Are you on dial-up or Broad band ?

Then make sure your software is set to connect to default connection (Control Panel/Internet Options/Connections / Always Dial My Default)

ypou ain't messed about with the security settings have you ? The trusted site thingy - - -can't for the life of me remember how you get in there, probably tools/options or something.

the security settings are all ok, i think it is some sort of spyware or adware that has been messing around with the settings.
