I am wanting to help a friend this weekend with an internet issue. Basically, whenever he tries to go to any website, IE suddenly disconnects from the internet and ends up back to the desktop. If IE is double clicked on the desktop to go back to the internet, it does the exact same thing. This is the same pc which had trouble with popups, but, I am unsure if there is any association there. The internet connection is cable modem.
Any thoughts or suggestions for correcting this problem will be welcomed and appreciated.
