Ok, fast forward to a month ago. I could not set up a network or any connectivity online under my acct. I was on the phone with technical support and they said it was an HP problem so I called them and for hours the tech guy promised "this will work" and NOTHING did. Somehow I mentioned in passing about my bf acct. and mine not always working. So suddenly he says to try again under my bf's acct. It worked this time. Hp guy said I probably had a corrupted registry and to set up a new administrator acct. and then move all my folders etc. and then delete or just don't use the old acct. So I haven't. The new acct. seemed to work just fine. I can change folders names etc. However, last night "something" happened. I was logged under my name and online and something kicked me off and then I could not get back online. It showed I was online but everytime I tried opening Internet Explorer I kept getting this message. "...xxx.com is not set up to establish a connection on port "World Wide Web service(HTTP)" with this computer. verify the current proxy server configuration."
As far as I can tell my bf's acct. settings are identical to mine, but I cannot view any internet pages thru my log on. I do not want to set up another acct. all over again. It is time consuming and not really solving anything. Any clue on what is going wrong and how to solve it?? My bf has used his acct. ever since we got the computer and he never has a problem. My acct. has all the pictures etc. and things I need when I go online so I can't do everything I need to do online under his log on. And again, I am a dummy when it comes to computer stuff, so please be kind!!
