just saying 'hi' as I am a newbie whom has decided to want to become a Geek smile.gif I'd appreciate any help you all can give as I am also reading on and getting information from your posts on this wonderful forum.
Just recently we changed Internet Provider and something must have happened when IE was messting up a while ago. Yahoo had problems, too. Ever since then I wasn't able to search my files and folders anymore. There is a blank page with a tail-wiggling doggie sitting at the buttom and that's it! sad.gif
Well, hubby can't find the Windows XP- CD Rom (I think they never gave it to him after uploading the system at the store. If you don't ask they may hope you come back to them when you got problems, and they make more money), so I am sitting here trying to repair this problem.
Ever since this day about 2 months or so ago, I also wasn't able to read 'the text' in my e-mails any longer when accessing the Internet through IE, so I downloaded Mozilla Firefox and it works.
Now the problem is that my husband changed internet providers and just how the Windows Media Player, I Tunes and others won't work anymore by being denied updates and new downloads, so it won't even read the CD-Rom from the new internet provider in order to install internet. I am torn right now, because the only way I get internet access is through the old provider which still is active and I am using the old router from them. When my husband gets home from work I a have to place the new router from the new provider, otherwise he won't get internet, because his computer is already switched over. My husband I and myself are not 'on good terms' so he won't let me use his computer to check my e-mails etc..... and he will soon give back the old router to the former internet provider and then I am screwed. I have no income in order to buy a $40 Repair Kit, as I also don't have any credit cards that I could use to pay online via pay pal or so. If my husband would take this computer back to the store they'd charge him about $100 to clean the computer and reload XP. I know that it may not be necessary, yet my husband is impatient and doesn't have the patience to figure things out on his own, because he can't deal with things when they don't work out, as he always freaks out, if things don't work right away. I have been accused that all this is my fault, and I haven't done anything to my knowledge that could have caused this problem. Hey, I'd like to have a properly working Computer, too.... Please, if anyone could help me to fix this problem here before I am totally cut off the net, because he'll take back the old modem some time, I'd truly appreciate this. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Yvonne.
