Just tried to log on and use Win98 cmputer. I had been using it this afternoon. Anyway after START>INTERNET EXPLORER>OPEN HOME PAGE I get message saying Cannot Find Server. I changed search engine from Google.ca to Yahoo. com, but same message on screen. I tried refreshing, but to no avail. I closed computer and tried this Win XP, but no problem logging on or getting Internet Explorer page as you can see. I am currently running Avast Anti-Virus on said Win98, as I write. Wondering if it could be Connections settings. Could it be anything else?

I will let you know what result of virus scan gives.

Regards

Update on my earlier post: Avast found no viruses in Local Disks, Removable Media or Archive Files.

Like I said, I managed to get Yahoo.com to come up, but I've been busy with Win XP most of the day and haven't tried Google.ca yet. Will let you know and thanks again.

Well it happened again yesterday, but the only way I could rectify the situation was to Disk Cleanup and restart, I had to restart.

Something must be goin on in the system.
