Help new laptop playing up

  Gadge3791 21:06 06 Jan 2008


anyone any ideas on this problem, I have a new laptop but I have problems accessing the internet on certian sites, like msn e-mail, facebook etc.

When I search on it you get the green bar that looks like it is looking for it but after 60 seconds or longer it error and comes up with a connection error like the internet connection has been lost (which it has not).

Anyone any idea as to why? is it something to do with the phishing filter?

I'm stumped (AGAIN)

Afraid I can't say what the problem is, but you asked about the phishing filter - have you tried it with the filter off/disabled? Personally I never use any phishing filters.

Try with your add ons turned off.Or possible bad download from Microsoft last month.I can't remember what one but it interfered with the running of I/E.

If it is not the add ons scroll back until after the 13th december and you will find that Bad Microsoft update.try deleting it from add remove.If it still the same the update will be added to the new Microsoft updates next Tuesday.Just another thought.You are not using Kaspersky are you.

Are you running with Mains Plug in? If not try it with it in.
