System: Compaq (don't know model, latest one however, 4Gb ram, nVidia G100 graphics Intel c2d 2.4Ghz). OS: Vista Home Premium When did the error occur? Today, started downloading a file via Torrent (ReBirth), told uTorrent to shut down system when done downloading. Did so. Restarted system and the error occured: Can not connect to the internet. Have tried bypassing the router directly to the cable modem. The connection does work in failsafe mode. I first thought it was network card/system files related. But in Failsafe it works, so what does that mean? Please help me if you know what to do, I'm not good at all in Vista OS. Thankful for any replies given..
