Which Operating System?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / August 31, 2010 3:57 AM PDT

It would sure help us if we knew the operating system on the computer...

Have you tried using a different browser such as the free Firefox below? It may be a problem with Internet Explorer but there's no way to know till you try something else.

Also, have you checked your computer for malware? If not, please download, install, update, then run a full system scan with both free malware removal tools below:

Malwarebytes Antimalware

Hitman Pro 3.5

And when you're done, check your LAN settings in Internet Explorer like this:

Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools-Internet Options-Connection Tab. Click on the LAN settings button. IF there is a check mark next to "Use a proxy server for your LAN", uncheck it. Click OK. Then OK, again.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your prompt reply. MYy desktop is running windows7 and my laptop xp professional. I have already gone into internet options in internet explorer and unchecked the LAN settings. I have now, also, downloaded the files you suggested and will send the application to my usb stick and install them on the laptop. I will get back to you when i have completed this. Thank you for your help. Regards, Cathy
