I had a big batch of Updates 23 & a reader update. After restarting I am unable to connect via my IE Icon on the taskbar. The IE page comes up & it says "connecting" then nothing happens. If I click on the Icon again I get another page with the same result. At one stage I had 6 pages up. I cannot disconnect either except by shutting down. I removed all the updates, rebooted & nothing had changed. I went through start > I E & got connected Once!. The second & subsequent times nothing. I can connect by going through mesenger & working backwards only. When my IE page is up all the icons in view fail to work. I am a novice at this so any advice , please keep simple (cos I am) please help. ta.
