righto people! heres the problem :-

first of i recently uninstalled NIS2006 as the licence was up and after reading the reveiw of Bit Defender 9 in this months PCA i decided to install the Internet Security version of it! which worked/works well for the last day or so!

This mornin i decided to have ago at settin up a network between my computer (which is wireless goin to a NETGEAR wireless router/modem) with my Other computer which is just connected via LAN ports! when i tried using the 'set up a wireless network through control panel it told me to save sumthing on a usb disc and go put it on my Lan PC but as this is not Wireless the set up didnt work or complete, when i canceled the set up on the wireless PC Internet Explorer doesnt work and nor does mozilla! BUT MSN messenger does work! when i try get updates for Bit Defender it comes up with an error!

Whats wronge with IE and how do i reverse what ever the 'wireless netork set up' has done- if its that what the problem? Iv just finished uninstallin bit defender and disabled the xp firewall! No firewalls are active! And it still doesnt work! Please help!
many thanks in advance!

Had similar problem No IE No Firefox but MSN worked after trying most things I changed the ADSL filter at the socket. This fired IE and FF up but now and then IE and FF fail so I swap ADSL filters round and alls well for a while.

Do all the pc's have the same OS?,when u set up a network with xp it asks you if you want to save the setup and run it on anohter pc so they are the same,if they are both running XP this doesnt usually matter but if itsa diffrent OS on each then u need to save it and run it on the other pc.
