Does the IE window open? Does it try to connect, or even tell that 'Website found'? In this case, must have been hit by spyware. After removing spyware, sometimes DNS errors occur. So, try to use WINSOCKXPFIX.EXE (please google it to download).

I need to get my icon back on my computer it was there today but gone tonight how to get it back


Are you talking about the Internet Explorer Icon, if so click Start/Programs and look for Internet Explorer. Right Click on it and then select Send To/Desktop (create shortcut)

Your internet explorer will now be on your desktop.

If it is not report back and we will have to manually search your hard drive for it.

Wireless internet connection problem


You may be having a problem with the settings in internet explorer. If you open your internet explorer and then click tools then internet properties you will have a window pop up with several tabs. Click the tab that says connections. Down towards the bottom right is a button that says LAN SETTINGS click that and make sure that there is a check in the box that says Automatically Detect Settings. Click OK Click APPLY Click OK. Restart Internet Explorer and see if it connects.

If that doesnt work reset your wifi adapter. Step by step instructions here:

http://www.icompute.info/fix_wifi.htm

If that doesnt work then open the command prompt by clicking Start then run (vIf you have Vista click in the search menu above the start button) Type CMD and hit enter. You should see a black and white screen that looks like old DOS. Dont worry about what the prompt says. Type IPCONFIG and hit enter. You should see your networking adapters. You should see one with a 192.168.-.- (Linksys routers normally make the first computer 192.168.1.100)
If you see a 196.254.-.- or media not connected then your device is not connected. This will at least tell you if windows is getting a proper IP address.

Some people might say your WinSock files need to be repaired If everything still does not work then you may have a WinSock file or files that are missing or corrupt. This is probably not the case since you can connect hard wired but if you want to try repairing your winsock files then with XP you can use a program from the internet called winsockfix. If you have Vista then when the no connection error comes up you should see a link that asks about trying to fix the problem. If you see this click it and let Vista fix Itself.

If none of this works then try a different adapter. Hope this helps...

Internet explorer cannot be found...


Check if you maybe have some IP and DNS settings to your WL network adapter:

Control panel
Network connections
Right to your WL adapter and click Properties
On the end of the list in the middle you'll find:
Internet protocol (TCP/IP)

Double-click it and set IP and DNS to Automatically. . . .
(OK, and than, again OK).

Check Internet Explorer settings:
Control panel
Internet Options
Click on Security Tab
Set ALL zones to DEFAULT
Click Apply and OK

Regards.

Internet Explorer


click on File at the top of the screen make sure it's not checked work offline.

Also make sure you have valid shortcuts of actual websites on your desktops and not copies of those same webpages, the difference is that when you click on a copied webpage it will almost always open up as an "offline" web page. When you click on an actual shortcut icon of a website it will open up and go to the website, however you still need to ensure that "work offline" is not checked.

Also update your internet explorer.

Another thing you can do is, open up a program that you know will pull up a webpage and try it that way. A final thing you can do is go under the Internet Explorer folder in the Programs folder under your hard drive and click on the Internet Ex icon there.
