I can connect to the internet with Internet Explorer but not with any other programs that use the internet such as firefox,Zune marketplace,or google earth. its been driving me nuts. I have checked my firewall and cleaned my computer of viruses and spyware. i have also used the selective startup to see if any programs were blocking the internet but it still didnt work any help would be greatly appreciated:grin:

Well, this sure sounds like a firewall issue, since you obviously have TCP/IP connectivity. Did you disable ALL firewalls and see if you can connect?

SP or you can update later.

If you have windows on CD by it's self easy job.

most computers boot from cd drive before comp starts from
harddrive( if not see how to change boot order). Put cd in and
restart; Win is loading start-up files; 1st stop select install NOT
repair with repair console; 2nd stop Win has found installed Windows. Select repair(click R, click enter): You will have to enter
product key number and select time zone. other than that just kickback with a beer and watch Tellie V for about an hour.

All your data,drivers and personal settings rermain the same.

this does not fix all problems but does do some repairing.

If you have recovery CDs from computer maker different deal.

luck
