My friend has been having some troubles with his computer.
1. He can connect to the Internet but when he goes to search for a page it refuses to search even though he's online and everything's fine.
2. When he goes to play a DVD he gets a message saying, an encryption file is missing therefore the computer cannot play the DVD.

I have formatted the computer and re-installed Windows 98 on it and still the Internet refuses to work and the DVD problem is just a new one I haven't checked it out yet. Any suggestions on how to fix both problems. Sorry the DVD problem is very vague but I haven't checked it out yet.

Thanks guys.

actually both problems are vague.

Anyway, the Internet problem: Who is your ISP? Is there perhaps a proxy server you need to add to you internet options? If not, do you have a name server (DNS) in your TCP/Ip settings? What is the exact error message? Does it happen for all web sites, or just a few? etc. etc.

DVD: What software are you using? I like PowerDVD. Maybe you need a codec?
