This problem seems to have begun after my wife "did not allow" a certain download on my netbook. After that, It spontaneously shut the computer down and when it was restarted, I could not bring up the internet at all. I proceeded to initiate a system restore which was sucessful in enabling internet access. Surprisingly, pages were loading much faster than before, but I started noticing issues. For example, on vbulletin forums, I cannot click the smilies or the formatting bars, I cannot open up my msn email account or my facebook homepage, I cannot upload photos to photobucket, and even registering to this forum, I had to use another machine because I could not see the exclusive code to enter it. I then tried to check on the restore status only to find that I could not open the system restore file from any way. I then tried to run a scan through McAfee, but I could not open that either. I'm sure I will find new problems as time progresses. Thanks for the help in advance.
