I went to bed last night and left the pc connected to the internet, on a website, when I got up this morning the internet connection had been lost, so I rebooted the whole lot, pc and cable/modem. This is about the third time I have lost the connection.

However I've noticed that IE7 has 'disappeared' can't find any trace of it, whether I boot as Admin or myself it should be on the desk top or in all programs.

Also a forum that I use - since they upgraded their server, smilies etc won't load up the hour glass is continually on screen - no one else has this problem do you think it could be my settings? I use Firefox and IE7 and Opera

thanks
