Since it is a work laptop, there is a possibility that the connection it recognizes is configured for work connection only.
you may try to set another "Default" connection on your "network connection" or install a pocket application (i used to do this on my work laptop) like pocket "mozilla" so that the browser settings are configurable.

here is what you do provided that you have a broadband connection:

for the network connection...
1.click start>settings>control panel
2.click network and internet > network connections
3.look for a connection icon that has a check mark on it, right click it then click on "canel as default connection"

you will need to change this back to default settings once you're done since your wife may not be able to use her laptop at work.

if you cannot install another application on the laptop try these:

1.open internet explorer
2.click tools> internet options>connections
3.on this window make sure the option saying "never dial a connection is clicked" if not, then click it, hit apply
4.once the wondow is good click on "LAN settings" button, on the window that will appear make sure no option is CHECKED, if you have some, uncheck them.

do make sure that you change this back also to how you found it once your done, because these settings may not apply to the settings of your wife for her office.

good luck!!!

How to unlock a toshiba laptop


  • Restart the laptop and try logging back in using the new password.

  • Log on without the Windows XP installer. If you don't have a Windows bootable CD, use another computer with internet access so you can create an emergency recovery disk (ERD) that will allow you to unlock a Toshiba laptop. Browse through the internet and search for ERD software.

  • Burn the ERD program into the blank CD and use it to reboot the Toshiba laptop that you want to unlock. The computer will automatically detect the program, so it will take you to a series of prompts where you can change your password.

    Method 1: Clear cached data in Internet Explorer
    To determine whether a performance issue or an error message is caused by corruption in the temporary Internet files or in other cached information that is used by Internet Explorer, you must clear cached data. To do this, follow these steps:

    Internet Explorer 7

    1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
    2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
    3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
    4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK.
    Run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode
    Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, are used by some Web sites to provide an enhanced browsing experience. An error may occur if an add-on is damaged or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer. To determine whether the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-Ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
    2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars, or plug-ins.
    3. Test Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly

    1st off - do a restore on the computer to bring it back to factory settings. This will clean it up and speed it up as well. 2nd you need more ram . Ram is very cheap and Vista needs lots of ram to run.

    Reinstall the Internet Explorer, that will help.
    U can reinstall Internet Explorer by clicking on start, control panel, add/remove programs, add/remove windows components, remove a checkmark next to Internet Explorer.
    Then restart the computer.
    Again go to start, control panel, add/remove programs, add/remove windows components, put a checkmark next to Internet Explorer.
    Then apply, ok and again restart the computer.
    Try to connect to internet and then check.
    It will not close again.
    Its possible that something might have been downloaded accidently and that is interfering with the internet.
    It should work.
    Otherwise, go to start, run, msconfig, startup, disable all, apply, ok and he restart the computer.
    It will block some programs that may interfere with ur Wireless Internet Access.
    It will work.

    Toshiba laptops with built-in cameras tend to come with proprietary software that controls the camera. You're going to want to disable or turn this off prior to using the camera in an IM client.

    Alternatively, since you seem to be having issues with Yahoo, consider trying Windows Live Messenger. Also previously known as MSN messenger, clients can now talk to people using Yahoo messenger. You might be able to have a video conversation that way, without having to deal with Yahoo.
