my pc is the main one, my daughters is the second. All was well, but now her internet has stopped working? but it works with her MSN. she says she has not added any programs or changed any settings (Don't they all ways) and i don't know what to look at or where to start.
I can transfare files between both systems, its just affected her using IE to browse
my pc works fine but as a precaution I reset the router, but that failed to cure it.
From what your saying I assume that she still has Internet access for MSN but cannot use IE to browser. The first obvious thing would be to check any firewalls and make sure that its allowing IE to access the Internet. If thats not the problem then check and see if other things can still connect to the Internet - might help to pinpoint the problem.
You are correct in your assumtion. she can access MSN, I have checked and turned off the firewall on xp to try that, however it still fails to connect. Theres not much else that will access the net ie. avg updates, adaware updates etc.
ah, you mean that when you minimise the program (close the main console with the cross in the corner), you can't pull it back upto maxmised?
hmmmm, very strange indeed
well, try firefox
do you download windows updates regulary? if it's done automatically, then she won't know that they are being installed. maybe try removing the updates one by one (you know what?? i actually don't actually know how to do this, sorry :S) and see if it's an update that's causing the problem
erm, failing that, try a repair installation of windows??
i'm sure theres a million and one reasons why this is could be happening, i wouldn't try a full format and reinstall just yet
