And now the reason for this post - Internet Explorer does not work and this is my mother's preferred browser - she has tried Firefox and Chrome and just doesn't like them. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE7/8 but still get the same non-response. The screen remains white, nothing loads, and the address bar shows:
The cursor remains an egg-timer for quite some time before returning to a normal pointer, even typing in a new URL changes nothing - the screen remains white and the cursor goes to an egg-timer for a few minutes before returning to a pointer.
Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
