Question: I would like to apologize in advance for the long post, but I'm lost here. I am having huge problems trying to open webpages.These problems started earlier tonight, after windows installed "13 updates" to my computer. After updates were installed, I tried connecting to the internet, then this happened "Error 734: The PPP Link Control Protocol Was Terminated" After several minutes of hitting 'connect', I was able to connect. But when I click on internet explorer, the att.yahoo page won't open. Instead, I've gotten a white screen (icons like the toolbar are still there), and at the bottom left reads 'waiting for att.yahoo' or 'connecting to att.yahoo' It stays like this completely. I tried typing in another website like google, but that doesn't work. I've even tried browsing the web with mozilla firefox, but same problem. I thought using system restore would work, but I've gotten this message "Restoration incomplete Your computer cannot be restored to (date chosen) System Checkpoint No changes have been made to your computer To choose another restore point, restart System Restore" I don't know what to do. I ran a full virus scan via Kaspersky Anti Virus 2011, but nothing showed up. In fact, Kaspersky can't even run its scheduled (midnight) update, most likely caused by the this event. I really do believe all of this is because of the windows installing those updates. I would really, REALLY apperciate the help in getting things back to normal with my internet (webpage) connection. Oh, my computer is a Dell desktop, and the operating system is Windows XP. The main browser is Internet Explorer 7. Thanks for the suggestions, but they didn't work. I can't open any links because they don't come up. When I try connecting to the internet, it's still the same "waiting for att.my.yahoo.com...." I also believe the system restore is completely corrupted. I tried restoring to 4/11, 4/9, 4/1, and even 3/18., but no dice. And again, I believe this is because of Windows installing 13 updates.
