I would suggest that you obtain a new disk and install from that.I picked one up yesterday from a Texas brand filling station, and it would appear to be much better than previous disks.

If you want phoneline help, try these numbers Automated helpline 0845 330 7124 [local rate 24 hours] Technical support 09062 517 517 [50p per minute 24 hours] Broadband support 0870 010 2462 [national rate 24 hours]

Can you tell us what the modem is please, so someone can point you somewhere to download them. You may get some updated drivers awell. If it's a SpeedTouch click here

You will NOT need to re-install Freeserve/Wannadoo. All you will need to do, is change your HOME PAGE to Wanadoo, if that's what you have. Internet Options- then change Home Page.

thank you for the prompt response - I was off line until now - I managed to reinstall after deleting the eTrust AV which was blocking some of the installation - it is working ok now - I propose to go for AVG next - thank you - jarani
