Internet explorer has gone ape. If I try to connect to the Internet via the i/e short cut (e) on my desk top all I get is cannot connect to web page/site but if i go to start/programs/Internet explorer 64bit(using vista) it works great. I have not changed anything ( worked fine 5/02, stopped working 6/02).
Also had a little windows pop up on tool bar saying i have a corrupt file run chkdsk. How do I find out what file is corrupt? and how do i run chkdsk?
Please help feel like a complete dunce

My Computer.Right click C I think you go into tools and there should be 2 boxes tick both and takes a while.

Remake the shortcut on your desktop. Go to Start - Programs - and right-click on Internet Explorer then select option to send/place shortcut on desktop.

Never understood chkdisk though. I had a faulty hard drive and it told me it was fine!! A new hard drive and all issues resolved.
