Hello,

Several months ago I clicked on a yellow update icon on my desktop and within seconds the screen went black, and after I shut down and restarted the computer, (HP tower) after which I could not open any internet provider. I verified I was getting an IP address, and able to ping google and other web sites, but the firefox campe up briefly and crashes, and the IE only briefly flashes a part of a screen before disappearing. Can anyone help me to diagnose or figure out this problem?
