Add/Remove programs has changed a bit
Control Panel> Programs & Features lets you Remove/Repair things
Windows Update lets you see what maintenance you have on, check for updates , download and install them
Be sure to logon as an Administrator - or swtich UAC off

Not enough to go on; "the wire from the modem" - dialup, broadband - make and model, ISP? Has the machine been able to access the internet before with the same set up?
