Ok, so I don't know what my sister in law did this time...

When ever I open Explorer, I get "cannot find server". when I type in a URL, I notice it goes through .com,.org, .net, .edu. (example: msn.com, msn.net, msn.org, msn.edu)


Any ideas? I'm getting access through MSN and my Limewire is still getting connected.

Well, thanks again!
