Windows 7: Admin internet wont work but guest does...

Admin internet wont work but guest does...

Just last night I was trying to go onto the internet but kept getting the same message "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly."

I checked my guest account and its fine (since I am able to post right now). I am not sure what to do -i checked the firewall status, and did a system restore for a couple of days ago. No website will work under administrator account and it does not say the file is corrupt or any scrary messages...what could be the problem?

I use windows 7 home edition....

Can you go into device manager on the admin account, and remove (uninstall) the drivers for the internet card, then click "scan for new hardware" for me?

Hmm. You must have had two drivers overlapped Glad it was an easy fix.
