I cannot use the Internet on my computer. I can do emails but not use any website. I am writing to you from my niece's computer. I was having this trouble a long while so asked AOL how come they sent me a router and said I must no longer use the BT 105 ADSL modem. It has not made any difference. I get all green lights on the router dsl, lan, wlan, internet, power. AOL said there's something wrong with my XP sp2 updates. I downloaded XP sp2 update through Microsoft help they advised to download professional sp2 when home was not downloading. I previously lost XP Home Sp2 when SP3 was updating automatically on my computer that is why I went to MS for help.
Please help. Liza

If you use IE7.Control Panel.Internet Options.Programs, and make sure Internet Explorer is your default web browser.
