I now notice that under "Did you know" in Help and Support I'm told that I have to connect to the internet. I used to see the tips and hints there but now it's asking me to connect to the internet,, and I'm already connected!

Thanks dj,, have set to Automatically Detect Settings but no joy. Will reboot and see if anything happens, back in a mo.

Apparently this is a well known problem on braodband connections, seems to work fine over dial-up. Not sure if there will ever be a resolution.

It's still the same so I'll give it a miss. Funny though as it's always been there until today. A horrible thought but maybe I've got rid up the updater with my Registry Mechanic?
