Mmm. I have a problem! I am running Windows XP, and my ISP is Peoplepc.
Within the last week, whenever I attempt to access the internet, I get the usual message letting me know Peoplepc is connecting. Then, the little box comes in the corner confirming I am online. But, when I try to actually acess a page, it it just continues to load forever. I get nowhere!
Also, when I try to check my e-mail, I get "timed out". (Although, strangle enough, I can send mail. I checked this by sending mail to my other account, which I checked on a friends' computer. By the way, I'm typing this message on a library computer. )
All indications (other than the ability to send mail) are that I am not connected to the internet, although when I pick up my phone, I hear the noises of a computer connection. (Is there a technical term for that noise? Just curious. )
I would be happy to supply any other information you need: give me a day or two, as I'll have to return to the library...
Please, please grace me with your technological genius! (But talk easy, I'm no wizard. )
I almost forgot! If it helps, I have Norton, and, yes, I have scanned. I also have Ad-aware, and, agian, have scanned. My father is convinced I have a virus and I have to kill off my computer and start anew....but he always says that.
