I have had to restore the PC using the restore disks. The modem connects ok but I can't open any pages.

Any ideas please, Thanks

By the way, have you installed anything other than what was on the restore disk?

Try WinsockFix. Works wonders for me always loosing Search Page

No, I've only installed the restore disk and the modem drivers. Since then, I've formatted HDD, restored system, installed IE6 from PCA cover disk. Still no joy.

As far as I can see everything is clean, but don't understand the problem.

Check Antivirus/firewall {if you have one}settings then check your ie settings tools>ie options also check your isp settings.

I'm sorry, to be a pain but I can't get access to the download because of account settings. Any suggestions. Thanks

I should have thought of that shouldn't I!

Mail me (click the envelope next to my name) and I'll download it and mail it to you. Be sure to tell me which version of Windows you have.

Thank you to you all for your input, I managed to download winsock2 Fix from a Boston site, ran it and "Volla", problem cured.
Many Thanks
