Is this on the same pc?

If it is you should be able to access the internet straight away. Is your daughters user set up as administrator.

With the e-mail you have to set it up on the NTL Broadband home page click here under 'Your account>>e-mail options' add new e-mail.

When you have set up the new address you need to set-up Outlook express.

The settings you need are:

Customer email format: [email protected]
Outgoing Mail Server address
Outgoing Mail Server type SMTP
Incoming Mail Server address
Incoming Mail Server type POP3

PSF---Yes it is the same computer and daughter is shown as administrator.
When clicking on internet the home page comes up without pics. and banners, from there we only get page not available.

Have you checked the security is not set too high.

In any browser page click tools > Internet options > then check in the security tab check that the security levels are not set at High. Choose default which is medium.
See if that helps.
