Dang. Sorry for your loss is appropriate?
Is your internet service through AOL? Do you have Internet Explorer, and if so, will it access the pages you need? If Internet Explorer was not messed up as well, it will work as long as you have an internet connection for it to use. May need to edit the internet settings for it to connect properly.
Some other things to try:
-Insert your Windows CD ROM and use the repair option.
-Use Windows Update to scan your pc for needed fixes and such
-Download your missing programs and reinstall them if possible.
A drastic step you can take is to reinstall windows completely, but you have to weigh the consequences of that against your needs.
Let us know what sort of internet service you have(dial-up, dsl, broadband). Also check for Internet Explorer and see if it will open correctly and get you to your web pages.
Nobility is not a birthright--it is a way of life.
