When I try to open IE it says it is "connecting" but then will just freeze and will never connect. This problem is occurring on a laptop that is connected by wireless router to my main desktop. The desktop connects to the internet, as well as other laptops on our network. My laptop shows that it is connected, and other programs connect to the internet (such as updates, etc.), but not IE.
I have run Norton in safe mode and didn't find a virus. I cannot run it in regular mode because the restore went back to a time when I was evidently updating virus protection and it is not installed. I have a downloaded version of Norton 2009 and can't access my email in order to reinstall it...
I am running Windows XP. I know you probably need to know more than that, but I'm not sure what so please let me know if you need more information and I'll try to get back with it asap.
Thanks so much. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
