  1. Hope someone can help.

    On my laptop, I cant get onto the net through explorer 7. Which ever icon i click (desktop, start, explorer files, the lot basically) I get the "egg timer" then nothing happens.

    In control panel and network connections (I have a wireless connection) it says I'm connected to the internet. When I select browse, I get the same, timer then nothing. Any ideas?

    p.s OS is Vista

    Cheers

    If you have a 3rd party Firewall - Trend, Norton etc, make sure IE7 isn't being blocked.

    You could also run through IE7's security settings and make sure they're all at default {Control Panel, Internet Options}.

    Using FireFox may be a quick fix until you get it sorted.
