I just got a E-machines laptop for chrismas. Tried to browse the internet and google came up. I try to go to any other website besides google and its faills. It just gets suck on "waiting for". So I figured there might be some kind fo wierd update needed, i tried to get my updates to work. But it just gets stuck on checking for updates. If anybody has any idea please let me know. Following has been checked and tried: 1) Uninstalled norton 2) Checked host file 3) check ipconfig 4) yes i do have an connect 5) reset IE defaults 6) added update.microsoft.com to trusted sites 7) turned off windows firewall 8) reset windows defaults 9) turned off all IE addons 10) stop all things from starting **) Would have tried firefox but i cant get to the site to download it!!! This isnt my first rodeo, but i'm about to scream here. Any idea or tips?
