Hi, recently I have had websites "fail to respond" and I have had to force a disconnection from the web by using task manager. When I try to reconnect I get a failed connection with this advice from Windows. "uk.yahoo (homepage) is not set up to establish a connection port "world wide web" service http with this computer. The only way to resolve this is to shut down completely (a restart does not help) and then I can connect to the web as easy as always.
This problem is not happening ona laptop sharing the same router connection.
My os is Vista home and I can find no reasons for the problem in Internet Options (as far as I can see)
Anybody help me out? Jim

Well, I have a friend who had that happen to him, his brothers' and parents computers using the same internet workde but his didn't, they wiped the hard drive and now it works fine, if you want to keep your hard drive, then my only advice to you is, buy an external hard drive, backup your files, chuck your windows computer (not recycle, chuck out the window) and go buy a mac..... it should work then. from a personal standpoint.... I hate windows (but I'm 16 without a job so I can't buy my own mac.....)
