Would be interested to know exactly what your ISP objects to. Are you able to give us any more info at all?

I can't understand your ISP even caring what version you have.

It's the browser you use, that does the work.
That has nothing whatsoever to do with the operating system.

Hi Zak, Nuts and Fingees

I will try the steps you so kindly advise. Re why isp is interested. Well it advises to let it know when sp2 update has been installed, when I said mine's sp3 and not sp2 it said never heard of sp3 maybe its BETA so get ms windows to remove it.

Hi Zak

Yes I did as you said and removed it and now no trouble from isp.

what isp was it please.

The only possible relevance which I can think of is if your ISP is also your security provider.

Never heard of an ISP asking this,i wouldent even consider tellig them as its nothing to do with them,what if you were using Firefox,Opera etc?
