Upgrade, then IE8 has no connection

Good Day,

I did an upgrade on wife's laptop tonight, everything went smoothly, or seemingly so. But trying to connect to the internet, IE8 won't connect. I know there is a valid wireless connection because I am on it as I type on a desktop using that same wireless connection.

Here is the odd part...with Vista, Microsoft did several updates in the last few months where they forced IE8 onto her laptop, and every time IE8 was installed, I had to go back and do a system restore before that update back to IE7.

With the upgrade to Windows 7, that looks unlikely to do a system restore, LOL.

Any and all help would be appreciated.
