I inadvertently (Stupidly!) deleted all web browsers on my spare computer. I re-installed Firefox on that computer but still cannot get web access. What can I do?

  • Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see
