I am on dial-up using XP and Explorer 8. My provider has worked with me on this and has come to the conclusion it is a computer problem.

Problem: When I click on the icon I get a blank page searching and it will not connect to the internet. Then I go to the menu to Connect Option and I can get to the internet with no page. To get to the page I click on the icon and it comes up. Any ideas on this? Would like to try all options before I hire a tecnician. Also, my provider says it may be a register problem or I need a new modem. I have no problem moving around on the net once I get there.

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

My server walked me through all the internet options and all is correct.

As to IE8, this problem just started a couple of days ago.

Guess what!:D I got in this time clicking on the icon!

I'm wondering if deleting ad-ons has something to do with it. I always delete my browsing history whenever I surf and just noticed that deleting add-ons occurs. When I logged off today I didn't delete my browing history. Just thinking out loud on this one.
