Need help with internet explorer

  lixdexik 17:25 12 Feb 2008

A friend is having trouble getting on to the internet with his new computer running vista. His isp has suggested internet explorer could be corrupt. How would one go about sorting that, if it is corrupt?

Cheers Lixdexik.

If using an Ethernet connection.Try turning the modem of for a minute then back on and leave for 2 minutes before using.Or like mfletch. download Firefox and load it onto your friends computer and use that until you get IE7 Working.

If you download IE7, it must be from a pc running vista, this browser is different from the one on XP
