Right have friend who is having all types of problems with her laptop.. So she's been having problems opening her internet browsers, ie and firefox.. She was having problems with her windows validation which we assumed was the problem so that has been fixed yet still can not open internet browsers.. (only intermittently works). When she brings her laptop to mine and connects to my wireless internet, no problems.. Then in the computer shop today the internet browsers opened no problem.. Then she gets home and they will not work. We know the internet is working as she is always able to sign into msn live messenger and chat to me online yet she could not open hotmail for example.. Her internet supplier (BT) say if she can sign in then there is no problem their end.. I am left pretty much baffled as to what is causing this problem.. Any ideas? Thanks. Charlie.
