WOW! I may not even be replying correctly which shows my knowledge of the modern computing etiquette. The amount of information that one would need to be able to determine if a program is not working properly is fairly signficant. My respects go to those who have absorbed and understand it all. Hopefully with continued efforts I will to. I am on the same network as my XP computer and it has none of the problems as the windows 7 so it is easy for us novices to jump to conclusions. I did restore back to a previouse restore point of that day and now my internet works. I am not sure why but will do a little research. Thanks for reading my post and giving me things that I should be aware of.
