Question about PC Desktops

Re: Home Computer access to the internet

I recently downloaded AOL 9.0VR on to my computer. After I did, I can no longer access the internet via a shortcut on my desk top. To access the internet, I now have to run another program such as Outlook Express and then go to my shortcuts and then to the internet. This happened after I downloaded AOL 9.0VR. Previously, I was running AOL 9.0. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We have a desktop computer at home with 2 users, my husband and me. Recently, my husband 'did something' and his user id will no longer allow him to access http:// addresses on the internet. He can...

On your husband's account open Internet Explorer. In the upper right corner, click the arrow next to "Tools" and select "Internet Options". In the Internet Options box, click the "Advanced" tab. Under "Reset Internet Explorer settings" click the "reset" box. Then restart IE.

There are other things that can be wrong, but let's try this first.

Internet no longer working, but internal network is fine.

i agree with all the above.. it's definately clear as mud how the network is designed and or funtioning. The machines connected to the wireless d-link router.. are they via cat5 inthe wired ports or wireless ? is the server the machine thats connecting to the switch and wiress router and modem? i'd say reset all switches modems routers and machines.. shut them all down.. then fire the cable modem, then the wireless router then the desktop switch then the server, the workstations and the one lonely wireless.. run "ipconfig /all" on all machines and if they aren't all sharing common ips and access, provide the results here for further investigation.

Problem is with your hard drive. You usually get that message when it crashes or is failing.

I'd suggest taking it to a local repair shop to confirm this.
