For the past week I haven't been able to connect to the internet with anything other than AOL AIM. I have dial up and do get a connection, the IE explorer seems to be loading but but at the last minute the load fail. The status bar says web site found, connecting, then nothing. I have even went to tools, internet options, programs and go to reset internet options and I get an error message of "cannot reset settings" the problem started, I think, when I moved the outlet and the computer turned off, I guess because the plug was a little loose. The computer has shut off like that before but this time I got this weired internet connection problem. Anyone got any ideas??? I tried using a different number to get a connection, created a new connection, nothing helped.
