OK gang, I am back with more computer problems. From the time I got my computer in december 2003, until march 31, last wednesday, my internet has never had a problem staying connected. Then, thursday afternoon, it is acting funny. I try to sign on to AIM; Service cannot be reached. Try to sign on to MSN messenger; Broswer cannot connect to the internet. Try to open a webpage, nothing. It was doing this for two other XP users on my computer. But, for my sister, it worked perfectly fine. After talking with a computer/xp knowledged person, he suggested system restore. I restored the system to the way it was wednesday, and Voila! it works again. For me. and not my mom or dad. So, I restored it for my dad back to last saturday, and nothing. I have no idea where to begin with this, other than contct microsoft. Does anyone have any ideas? This problem seems way out of the ordinary.
