    I'm not sure what I did but I was attempting to reinstall windows xp and somehow there is nothing . I went into my add and remove programs file and it is empty. I had wireless internet and now I have no internet connections on my computer. I'm not sure if I can fix my problem. I'm open to all suggestions.

    The Add and Remove form takes quite a while to populate sometimes so you may need to wait a few minutes. When you reisntalled, the drivers - software which is essential to run the machine - were wiped out and need to be reinstalled. You can use the machine you're posting from to find them but post back the make and model number and someone will be able to suggest the right place to go.

    Did you attempt to reinstall XP or did you complete the reinstall? You're not being clear about that.

    Did you use an actual XP CD or did you use a recovery/restore CD?

    If you haven't installed any programs or drivers or updates since reinstalling XP, the Add Or Remove Programs window will likely be empty.

    What's the brand name, model name, and model number of that computer? If you don't know, advise what the product/part number on the sticker is.
