I do not have any restore points. I did not know this utio yesterday and I have since added this feature.

Let us then try and roll back the network drivers. This way it would install the previous version of the driver and this may resolve the problem.

Roll Back driver

Also how to do you access the internet? Which browser do you use? Do you get any error message when you try to access the internet?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
