I am, believe it. I've been cradling the keyboard for the last five minutes and chewing nails down to fingers.
Two days without my lifeline, my internet, my blog, I even missed Robbbert. (I've given him 3 b's for happiness)
I was even sweet to the tech support Peter Sellers imitator.
Nothing wrong with connecting to the internet just the computer not letting me load pages or emails with a little message saying "server not found".
Tech support took me through all the default settings, nothing wrong there so he suggested it might be the anti-virus. Turned off all security, nothing, so turned it back on.
Then I found something called system restore, shiny. Just pick a highlighted date which has restore points and click. Back to July 1st, before children downloading MySpace/youtubes and I was in business.
All I have to do is remember where I found it.
The joy of seeing a page load.
Checked in with blogger dashboard. It's official I have a big mouth, 769 posts since October 2005.
This internet thing is almost as good as chocolate and gin, almost.

You're restrained - I'd have been chewing the keyboard itself!
Also check all your updates are not automatic (in Control Panel) - had a Windows update recently that did the "server not found" nonsense to mine, had to hop in the Tardis and do a system restore.

Funny you should say that but I had two updates just before it went pear-shaped. And another has just automatic-ed itself. I will check the control panel. I'm sticking with XP, not having anything to do with 7 or Vista.

Installation of Microsoft Update KB951748 may result in loss of Internet connectivity.

Thank you,

Looks like you were quite right Jayne.

System restore ROCKS don't it?

Jayne said...

Yep, I got that message from Zonealarm this arvo, too, J.
XP here as well, can't be bothered with the problems in 7 or Vista when I'm still ironing out the ones in this lol.

Jayne, would you believe microsoft reinstalled it last night so I had to remove it again this morning.

Well it does now that I know where to find it, Therese.
