    .. . . on this computer."

    Hi . . .just received this message just followed by the following note:

    Remove the malfunctioning network component.
    Warning: The application that installed this component might not work
    properly after the component is removed. (Cheery note!)

    Suggestions, recommendations, updates?

    Thanks.

    first, reboot your computer. does the problem clear or does it
    reoccur?

    if this persists, did you recently install any programs or updates?
    (including anti virus updates).

    if yes, can you try a system restore to a point before this started?

    need more information for more trouble shooting (check event logs,
    etc.)

    Barb,

    Rebooted. Am traveling, staying with friends. Had started to do things like
    clear history and cookies; simply was unable to connect. At that point my
    girl friend's computer was not connecting either. We finally figured out
    that Charter Communications was having issues at their end rather than my
    computer individually. Thanks for your helpful response. Kelvie
