    I will try to keep this brief and I must tell you I am not all that comp. literate BUT here is my problem. I don't know when this started but whenever I want to log in to Yahoo Messenger it says:"An error occured while trying to connect to server. This could occur if you do not have an active connection to the INTERNET (BUT I DO)", when I try to log in to my Live Journal it says: "ERROR can not contact server."

    I also can't play a game (old or new) it says:"Setup is unable to locate a file in needs to continue please make sure the CD Rom is in the drive and press Retry to continue."

    Basically anything I want to download except I can download websites and such.

    What is wrong? Is it my xp? or really my server. I really could use somebody's input.

    Thanks ahead of time,
