Thanks so much! I'd been to several other Q&A sites but none gave me info that helped. Was worried I would try something that was over my head and really hurt the computer trying to fix it. Thanks for making it easy and fast - I'm good to go now and so happy to have my internet back! You just saved me a major headache!
