anyone else having a connection problem with I.E. and F.F.?
"this page can't be displayed" - I.E.
"server not found" - F.F.
I have internet access, eg I'm online with "pressf1" by typing in the search bar, and the icon in the taskbar, bottom right confirms -
would it be my computer?
right now FF is not functioning but IE is, that's how I got online

IF..you have a nasty virus/malware infection, the virus often removes system restore points .
Run a malware & AV scan.

1101 - thanks, I ran MWB, Avast, SuperAntiSpyware, started Restore Points again, last night, then closed down for the night - This morning both FF & IE seem to be okay (touch wood) and the restore point survived - after that I'm at the end of my problem solving, perhaps apart from involving the W7 boot disc, cheers

If the computer has some sort of system corruption the restore points can also not show.

Had that the other day with a W7, the normal system restore was empty, but booting from the repair CD, selecting restore they all were visible and worked fine.

Wainui, --- from the Boot Disc, selected Restore, only 2 restore points
6/24/2014 - 2.52pm -- Windows Update -- critical update
6/24/2014 - 2.42am
my update last night was around 9pm, showing 2.42am. Maybe that W update caused the problem. Make any sense?

Wouldn't be the first time a Windows update has caused problems, wont be the last either ;)

Check your time/Date on the PC as well, if I read your last line correctly.

time & date on computer okay - seems to be working okay now. Do you think I need to do anything else? or maybe it has righted itself and I can forget about it, I'll keep an eye on the updates though, thanks for your input

time & date ok, is there any thing else i can do? or has it righted itself? thanks anyway Wainui
