Hello,

I booted up a computer with BartPE CD and was wondering if it's possible to access a web site through it. It loaded my network adapter ok.  I just don't know how to get to a browser. Thanks!

BartPE is a basic recovery environment.  There is no browser built in.  If you research the product, you should be able to add one.

However, if you want it already integrated into a CD, then I suggest you look into the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows - www.ubcd4win.com.  Or almost any linux boot CD will have a browser, including Knoppix and Ubuntu.

Ok sounds good. Will the ubcd have internet explorer? Thanks

No - IE is an integral part of Windows and incorporating it into the boot CD would undoubtedly have been exceedingly complex.  UBCD4WIN includes Firefox 2.0

There are plugins for BartPE which install Firefox, Mozilla or K-Meleon.

I'm not sure, but there are rumours that some verions of BartPE come with the minibrowser Off by One. To check, run a search for ob1.exe. If you find it, use it to browse away.
If you don't find it, check whether BartPE includes wget by searching for wget.exe. You could then download OffByOne by running:

Install a portable version of Firefox (http://portableapps.com/news/2008-09-28_-_firefox_portable_3.0.3) to USB key, insert USB, then bootup from BartPE CD.

Faster and more handy solution - if your computer supports boot up from USB, make a bootable BarpPE USB key (it also may contain portable Firefox or other portable applications / apps. that don't require installation). The tool for that is here: http://gocoding.com/page.php?al=petousb
