Excuse my ignorance but I will explain my problem, I cannot seem to get my windows internet to go. My outlook express works fine, as long as I do not try to open a web page with it, I can get onto the internet via firefox, which is how I am able to talk to you now. I tried the cmd thing on the "run as" option but it just opens a black blank page and immediatly closes again. In fact that is what the internet page does as well, eventually the page opens which is blank then closes after half a second. I have not downloaded any up grades or anything else (consiously) , I have tried a system restore which may get the internet to work once or twice but no more and I have carried out virus scans to which the last one was clean,
Any ideas in as plain english as you can manage please I am not the most computer literate of people

Thanks for that but no go I'm afraid. The page just comes up says it is connecting and disappears again. I have checked that the IP address and gateway stuff is still there which seems ok as it was not that long ago I installed the netgear wireless router.
I am inclined to think that it is something in the program settings but what I have'nt a clue, everything else seems to work ok but the whole computer slows down when trying to use internet explorer.
