ok, here's the problem, I am visiting my mum this weekend and she was haing some problem with her machine, so I started taking a look. Seemed that lots of stuff wasn't working (apps, windows update, Norton Virus etc) so since she didn't have a lot on here I thought I would rebuild using the recovery disks. I backed up what she did have and fired up the recovery process.
All seemed to run through fine, except when it was all comeplete I can't access any microsft sites, update, messenger microsoft.com....I just can't get to any of them...although I can get to any other sites no problem...I am posting here using her PC. They have another laptop in the house so I fired that up and it was having exactly the same problem! ok, so I am thinking that maybe it has something to do with the wireless network I set up for them....except I have my work laptop with me and I can get everywhere no problem....I am a loss to know what to check now, anyone have any suggestions?
I've checked the internet settings and reset them, switched off the firewall....nothing! I've even tried Firefox to see if it as a browser specific issue, again no luck [img]/forums/images/smilies/sad.gif[/img]
