    Here is my problem.
    When I try to view online episodes on ABC.com a window comes up telling me that only viewers in the United States can watch these full length episodes! I'm in Idaho!
    So we took care of it once by going to My Computer, properties , remote and then unchecking the remote assistance box. The problem now is that the box is un-checked and it is doing it again.
    I have the 2002 version of XP home.
    I appreciate any help you can give!
    Thanks

    Idaho is in the U.S.? Are you sure? :)

    Check your Regional and Language Options in case something got messed up there.

    Who is your ISP?

    Cable One is our provider.
    Where would I find the Regional and Language Options?
    I know, I'm less than a novice at this. But I'm trying!

    Thanks for your suggestion. I finally figured out how to find the Regional/Language Options and checked but they were set just as they should be. If nothing else I am learning more about my computer. Thanks for the help. If you have any other suggestions I would sure appreciate them.
    Thanks again!

    Are you running any security or privacy protection software?
