What about firefox or chrome? Have you tried those as well?

I just want to see if it is a broken IE or something else in the system :wink:

Hi Shane,
Thanks for your reply and a great site
I tried a new Firefox and it connects fine
Im wondering now if its viral even though nothing showed up yet?
Have run Fix IE repair tool and D7 repair utility but no  improvement

Go to control panel and then internet options.

Once open click on the connections tab, then click the lan settings button.

Get a screen shot of that for me.  :wink:
