I was at my sister's the other day sorting out a couple of issues with her laptop, with cable internet broadband. I had removed a few unnecessary programs, stupid toolbars that load with other programs if you don't click not to install, and some other general maintenance when I realised she could not connect to the internet anymore. My computer works on her connection but hers keeps saying page unavailable, etc.
Tried to repair connection and did a system restore but no good.
Any ideas anyone?

Check in File and make sure "Work off line" is not ticked

Or if connected by Ethernet.Try switching modem off and then on again.

I assume you are using Internet Explorer: Go to the control panel, Add Remove software,select windows components (Look at left of screen, 3rd box down), unclick Internet Explorer, shut down & restart.
Go back to windows components and re-select Internet Explorer.
This will load the program in at the default settings.

If you are using another Internet controller, just reload the program in.
