my problem started about one year ago. i installed ie6 and sp1. problems started to occur then. my isp would not respond after i had been online for seconds or minutes, ie no new pages would be loaded and the upper of the two little tv icons in the tray would not light when i pressed "go". in an effort to fix this i have changed isp, got rid of me and loaded xp home, tried opera, changed my modem and renewed the graphics card. all to no avail. the problem persists, does not depend on the phone line used, my other computers in the house are unaffected. any ideas?
