Internet suddenly not working! - please help

  Viv-208691 21:25 14 Jul 2004

I recently downloaded a Norton 'live update' to find that immediately after my internet connection stopped working (i.e. informed me that 'this page cannot be displayed).

The XP pc is hardwired to a linksys router and it has aol 9.0 on it.

I attempted system restore but for some reason it fails to restore to any system restore checkpoint.

Does anyone have any suggestions?-i desperately need to make it work again!

Can you connect if you shut Norton off?

Check your configurations with your router and PC the router might have reset.

Hi, thanks to all of you for your help. I uninstalled norton utilities and now my pc is connecting to the net just fine. I dont know why it mucked it up in the first place though. I think that i now believe the rumours about norton being poorer than a lot of free software...

Thanks again.
