  1. Hi
    I have a desk top pc, which loads up and then I cant get onto the internet. We know we have internet as we run a laptop. I have tried a system restore, this has not made any difference. I have cleaded temporary internet files and run free avg 2013 to see if I have any viruses.
    One day we can get on and the next we cant, any ideas? The computer also appears to be a little sluggish (only 2 years old).

    Any help is appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    What operating system do you have?
    have you tried re-installing the LAN driver?

    Hi Dodong

    I am operating on windows 7. I will un-install avg and try the microsoft security essentials Tmagic650 and see if that makes a difference.
    thank you Paula
