Administrator can access internet but basic account can not in XP.
Posted on 2004-04-02
I have a XP machine that recently stopped allowing the basic account onto the internet. It has 2 accounts, an administrative and a basic. When I log into the administrator account everything runs fine, but the basic won't let me access the internet. I've scanned for viruses and ran adaware and spybot to remove spyware. Noticed that newdot.net was removed during the proccess. I've had problems with them before.
When logging onto the basic account nortons gives me a warning saying that the network isn't properly configured. I click on the dsl connection and it says it logs onto the network fine. But when I try to access the internet through IE or msn messenger page cannot be displayed. I know that the windows firewall is turned on and I also deleted the basic account and set up a new one. Same thing.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
