Everytime I now bring up the browser, it brings up my homepage just fine, everything loads properly and in a timely manner, Whenever I try to use the search engine or try to go to another website (google for instance) It simply opens up another instance of I.E. with a blank page that is completly unresponsive.
The first browser instance remains open and remains on the homepage with the URL of the homepage (not the site I was attempting to go to) highlighted. I have to close both instances otherwise they simply both remain unresponsive. I have windows XP, after numerous attempts of restarting and shutting down and turning back on, reseting the web settings, checking to make sure proxy servers weren't checked off, etc... I simply did a system restore back about 3 days. Once completed I was able to once again surf the internet unhindered. however, I went to bed last night, came back to my computer this morning (I did not restart nor shut down my computer overnight) and it's back to having the same problem it was last night.....
So, Any helpful suggestions?
forgot to mention, I work for the company that provides my internet, so I can check and verify that I've got service coming in and signal strength for the connection is good.**
