I have a HP Compaq 6730b laptop. Today it connected to my son's wifi but will not load any pages with Firefox or IE. I have XP Pro. I checked the proxy settings and it is not checked. Each time I restart it updates. My tablet is acting perfect and his laptop is acting normal also. Am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated.

I think Roodo is suggesting that the security settings might be too high.

Ok, don't want to sound dumb, but where would I type this in at? I'm not real educated on the inner workings of a computer.

Not sure where to find this info but what I do see says, Intel ® Wireless Wifi Link 5100.
I typed number into address bar and it says "the connection has timed out." The server is taking too long to respond. How do I check to see if Firefox is permitted to access the web?

No, only when I shut it down. I let it install them but it shouldn't install them multiple times should it?

Security update for Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 SP2 on Windows server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB2844285)
same as above (KB833940)
Same as above (KB2863239)
When I go in manually to let them install it says these updates were not installed. This computer was working flawlessly Sunday, shut down and not used until today. Using the same internet connection at my son's house.
