*Sigh*...Isn't there always something? My desktop computer won't even bring up the home page now. It says at the bottom: "Detecting proxy settings". What on earth does that mean? How can I repair whatever it is and get going again? Thank goodness I have TWO computers. I'm not sure I'll EVER buy an EMachine again....more problems than it was worth.

Hello, if you open internet explorer and go to tools then internet options, click on the connections tab and then click on LAN settings, take off all the ticks and see if it works.

Hope this helps
