    I followed the above instructions upto the :netsh winsock reset.
    rebooted and was able to access the internet for a short time then the same screen appears saying that the internet page cannot be displayed due to not being connected to the intenet! But Iam!!!

    I then tried your other suggestion, the netsh int ip reset but I get the reply, one or more of the essential parameters were not entered etc etc

    kind regards

Yahoologin nahi ho raha ha

It will probably fix the problem if you clear your browser's cache. Close the mail page, click Start > Control Panel > Internet Options (or on Internet Explorer toolbar click Tools > Internet Options) and delete Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, and History. You might also click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup > and run Disk Cleanup.

If you're using the New Yahoo! Mail and the above answer doesn't solve the problem, you can click this link and at the top of the page it asks "Do you really want to opt out?", click Yes and you will be switched back to Yahoo! Mail Classic.…

You can also use this link to check and send your Yahoo! Mail, although it doesn't have all the features of the regular Yahoo! Mail site.…

Internet exploer can find the internet i'm after but when i try to log on it has the follwoing error message: internet explorer can not display the web page. can you help me

Hi there,

You should bee able to see all the internet pages with internet explorer 7.

Try to use this browser instead to log in and see if you can instead. Firefox portable. You simply compy the content to a folder of your wish and find the folder and press on firefox file. If you do not wish to keep the browser you simply delete the folder.
OR you can also use the stable version of firefox, both links are provided here:

Firefox portable:

Firefox (stable):

IF it is working you need to reinstall your Internet Explorer, I suggest you use windows update to upgrade to Internet explorer 8, you find windows update many places, one place it is, is in internet explorer 7 under the menu tools (just next to help).

Hope that helps
IF NOT then return here
Have a nice Sunday
