Hello friends. The pc I use to access the internet is an XP Pro client on a client-server network. I find it impossible to download drivers. Sometimes when I locate programs eg drivers etc and click on DOWNLOAD to get it, the nasty pop-up message is SURF CONTROL. ACCESS DENIED. This makes it impossible to get programs and other material I need from the net. What's the way out, please. Thanx in advance

refer to your system administrator - sounds like there are restrictions in place

Thanx for response. Unfortunately the system administrator is not available so what I'll have to do is probably to access the internet using my dial-up pc. What I really needed today was a diagnostic software called powermax from the MAXTOR website. I need it to test a quantum hdd. I traced it on the site alright but on clicking DOWNLOAD the pop-up message was as above-ACCESS DENIED! What do I need to change on my dial-up pc to remove this restriction? Please help. Thanx in advance.

is your dial up PC in anyway connected to the network?

as for the networked PC, you need to contact your system admin, he should know how to fix it. or send him here if he doesn't :P

The dial-up pc is a standalone at home.
