This normally will not lose any data but simply repair the OS.
You may ahve to do some of the updates afterwards.

OK lets see if it is IE or your network settings.

Download FireFox from my signature below and install it.
Try to see if it will connect to the internet with it.

OK then the problem is not the browser but the network.
Please Go to
1: STARTand the click on RUN
2: Type in devmgmt.msc
3: Click Enter

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply
