Specs: Windows xp, Pentiun 4
I have a computer on my home wireless network that connects to the network but the browsers have stopped working. I tried anti spyware, turing off firewall, reducing security levels an checking proxy server is not checked. Any suggestions?

BTW I was able to install SP3 upgrade but still no browsers. Tried to load winsocfix but part way through e install I get a message saying I need Internet access to complete the install.

A couple of reboots later and all is well. I have IE and Firefox loading websites properly again. Opera is still not working correctly but I can live without it for the time being. Thanks anyway!!!

Maybe (now) an uninstall and re-install of Opera might work.

We all live on a ball.
