Hello

I cannot use the Internet on my computer. I can do emails but not use any website. I am writing to you from my niece's computer. I was having this trouble a long while so asked AOL how come they sent me a router and said I must no longer use the BT 105 ADSL modem. It has not made any difference. I get all green lights on the router dsl, lan, wlan, internet, power. AOL said there's something wrong with my XP sp2 updates. I downloaded XP sp2 update through Microsoft help they advised to download professional sp2 when home was not downloading. I previously lost XP Home Sp2 when SP3 was updating automatically on my computer that is why I went to MS for help.
Please help. Liza

If you use IE7.Control Panel.Internet Options.Programs, and make sure Internet Explorer is your default web browser.

This sounds like Windows Firewall is blocking you
