    Computer connects to the internet via comcast modem. Comcast doctor app
    shows a connection. When I try to connect using a desktop icon, a screen
    opens (like it normally would when connecting to a website). Bottom message
    line says website found, attempting to connect; but the address line is
    blank. Type in adress, same results. Strange things seen: once or twice I
    was able to access the Google website. After accessing, I could go no
    further. Same scenario. Also no access to any MS website. I would receive
    updates, but one keeps trying to reload, error msg, and again. A Windows
    Installer program opens when I right click the start button. Stops at
    Stuffit11, looking for a file. Apparantly not there. Tried start; run;
    typed in a cpl file (forgot which one), cannot find app. I do not have the
    system CD's anymore.
