After updating my girlfriends laptop, (consisting of updating and enabling Windows security and firewall, installing AVG and updating iTunes) once the laptop was returned to her the Internet Explorer displayed difficulties. It presented the screen that the website could not be displayed, presenting the problem that the Domain name does not exist.
This is present even when the wireless router displays full bars - but it works fine on my own network.
I have performed a system restore, restarted the laptop and router, searched through the control panel to no avail.
I do recall seeing an option regarding types of connections that I clicked, but I don't recall where I saw it during the updating.
Any help would be cool.

Try accessing the internet in Safe Mode With Networking.


How to Access Safe Mode With Networking

While the computer is turning on, tap F8 once every second until a black screen with white text appears. Using your arrow keys highlight the option Safe Mode With Networking and hit Enter.

Note: If you're using Windows XP, connect to your modem or router with an Ethernet cable, then follow these directions.
