    You said everything was working fine like an hour ago? Did you do anything in that last hour for that to occur? Why don't you do a system restore?

    Start
    All Programs
    Accessories
    System tools
    System restore

    Try that. It couldn't hurt

    Just restore to yesterday or the closest date it will let you.

    What were you doing before it happened? Did you try to install a game and it happened?

    I would suggest looking at this thread and following the instruction exactly. I'm not sure if it will get rid of your problem, but it certainly won't hurt anything.

    What type of internet connection (dialup, cable, or DSL) do you have?

    You have to have more than just a wireless, unless you are just roaming around. Are you on a Network, and your computer connects to that network through a wireless router, or what? If you are on a network, are the other computers, on it, having the same problems?

    Glad to hear it, probably just a glitch or interference with the wireless.
