Windows 7: Computer illiterate needs a little help !

windows 7

First off I wanted to thank the multiple forum members for posting their wisdom. A nice touch of humanity in sometimes cold world !
My wife is able to log on her account and access the internet ( right from the icon) yet as the main account holder I am not. In the 3 weeks I have had the computer ( with this OS installed) I have had no problems. That would leave me to beleive that its not the OS, the connection and I'm even more perplexed than usual ( shocker !)
as to why it would be unique to just my account ?

Hello Nica,

Welcome to the forums.

Have you installed any new add-ons. You could try opening IE with no add-ons (start/all programs/accessories/system tools. If it opens then an add-on is the prob. You could also try a reset of IE. Info here if needed: Internet Explorer - Reset

Hope this helps.
