Computer with office 7. It is hardwired to the internet, has worked fine for a couple of years. Rebooted and now cannot connect to internet via IE or Chrome, though I can send and receive emails through Outlook.

Hello,

OK time for some basic trouble shooting. Open a command prompt (start, accessories, command prompt).

At the prompt type:
ping 4.2.2.2

If you get a response back then you are connected to the internet ok. If not then you probably have a firewall or router issue. Try re-booting your internet modem/router.

If you got to 4.2.2.2 ok then see if you can resolve domain names:
ping google.com
if you get a response back then you are able to resolve names and you need to look into your browser having a strange route set as your home page. SO what is the error you get from either IE or chrome?

Are you using proxy network or VPN by any chance ??
