I bought a Dell laptop for my daughter and have installed steam but keep getting the message "cannot load web page unknown error-118" i uninstalled proxy settings as advisd in another forum and managed to access the store and web site but when i tried to purchase a game i got same message but with code -7 then when trying to access store again 118 kept rearing its head again i realise its not a gaming machine but my daughter only wants a few of the less demanding games and as it was a present for xmas its a bit disappointing so if anyone can help it would be great thnx: dell 17R, i3, 4gb ddr, 500gb hdd, win 7 64bit, 1 gb nvidia graphics
