SP2 prevents internet access...

Not fully up to date with the complete picture, but my mum has received a new PC and is telling me that she had to uninstall SP2 before she could get online again.
Does this mean anything to anyone please?

Any simple buttons to tick or untick for this one?

Regards,

Nick

SP2 switches on the windows firewall and has a site blocker that may need to be configured.

I have SP2 and it's running ok here.
I have the Fire wall turned off as I use the one built into my router for wireless.

I can't see anywhere that offers a configuration though...where do I go for that please?

Many Thanks.

OK, turned mine back on before I could see those settings.

I shall ask what she has ticked there.

Ta.
