I know it is not the actual internet connection cause it works on my work computer which is wireless connection.as you can see and I can get my email through outlook!

Unfortunately I can't help you, Barb. I gave up fighting with IE looooooong time ago when I started using FireFox. IE is always tempermental and unstable...a bit like a few here really ;):laughalot:

Barb, it must be either a conflict with the firewall or Internet Explorer 7 has incorrect settings.

Go to "Add or Remove Programs" and uninstall IE7. It will automatically revert back to IE6, then reinstall IE7 by using the link below:

Internet Explorer 7: downloads

Good luck! :)

Thanks that is what the computer technician I use for work told me to do and it went back to IE 6. Do you think I should download the IE7 or just stay with 6.0 I have no idea what the difference is!

Keep IE 6, Barb. I don't have the problem you have, but the browser is so different, I don't use it. I use FireFox most of the time, and occassionally, Netscape 8.1.

Barb....I'd recommend keeping IE 6 as well. I downloaded IE7 a few months ago and have been having nothing but problems since. From my experience, I don't recommend it.
