can anyone help with this problem.
about a week ago i put a multi-session cd in my pc to add some files using nero 6, but the disc looked empty to nero. when i used win explorer i could see and use the files.i then went on the internet to see if i had any emails, the web page didn't open although i had a connection to my isp(orange.com) and my emails in outlook express didn't open either.i'm using windows ME.
has anyone had this sort of problem before.

After the connection problems of last weekend I still have one web address that I can not access. All others are fine. What email client are you using?

hi Jak_1,

Check internet properties:

Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs

Check that Outlook Express is the default Browser for email and has nor been altered.
