I'd bet a house payment that your connectivity problems have nothing whatsoever to do with your browser. Downloading firefox isn't going to solve this problem for you - it's a better browser than IE, but it's still just a browser; it doesn't have much to do with how your computer connects to the internet. Your first step should be to look at your network settings to make sure your network connection is active, your firewall and security settings may be blocking it also.

Also uninstall any trial security software it shipped with, and the browser redirect software Dell usually installs.

I've been trying to remove McAfee(trial) because I don't trust them. But it say's that the remove is not complete.
I think when I disabled this it helped.

Connecting to the internet is.was not a problem, never has been. it was loading and unloading pages that was slow.

But I think you guys are right, by disabling the Trial Security helped.
Since I disabled it I haven't gotten one "Internet Exploer cannot display this webpage"

Oh! wait! yes I did..........but my modem was turned off.....

How do I finish uninstalling McAfee?
