I have Windows XP. Im not very good with computers, but I have a problem which nobody thus far has been able to answer.
Yesterday when I came home I found that AIM could not be reached. Figured AIM was down, went to browse the Internet Explorer. When that didn't
connect, I started to get worry. It didn't give a "Webpage cannot be displayed" type page, but nothing. Nothing would load in the toolbar, and no
page would come up. The loading bar was just skipping. It would load half way across the toolbar then restart.
Tried Fulltilt poker, couldn't connect to server. So I restart my computer and router. Nothing. Run all my spyware and adware programs, run AVG and
norton. Nothing. I still cant sign on to AIM, use IE, or FTP.
BUT, I open limewire and the internet connection is strong and I can search for anything I want, download anything I want. So how can I have a
connection on this but nothing else? Couldn't figure it out, so I walked away and watched a movie. I walk back, and I to my surprise I could sign on
2 hours later I realized no one was responding to me on AIM. I also realized that the page on my IE hadn't loaded. So I close them both, and again,
they didn't work.
Today I woke up and I could sign on again. I'm writing this now, but not sure when I will be able to get back to it. Any ideas would help.
