    No connectivity for any application other than Internet Explorer.

    Can not update any applications.

    Can not sign in to any apps, such as Paltalk, AIM, etc.

    Internet Explorer runs fine.

    Computer Specs:
    -Compaq Evo N800c
    -Windows XP SP3
    -Pentium 4 - M 2.0ghz 1.99ghz
    -512MB RAM

    Computer was bought refurbished and I believe XP had been re-installed and I am not sure if all the factory divers were properly re-installed...could this be part of my problem?

    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
    Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >

    start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager
