uninstall it in the control panel and then restart your computer.
Things should get back to normal.
I've searched the threads and can't fine an answer to this question, so here it is.
I'm running Windows XP with IE 7.0 with Comcast Cable. A couple of weeks ago I stated getting the message that I was "Offline" message when I started the browser or Outlook Express. Clicking under "File" does not show the Offline checked in either Outlook Express or IE 7.0.
A quick click to go online results in an immediate connection so this is just a minor irritation. I'm wondering if this is just some new security procedure to put another barrier against the outside world. I can certainly live with it, but in truth, it does bug me a bit.
Any ideas about why I'm offline with an always on cable connection?
