a mate of mine is here with me and is having problems with this computer. Basically Internet Explorer doesn't seem to be on his computer so is not able to access the Internet, any ideas what we can do to fix this?

you have to do is launch a Windows application like Calculator, and then click the Help button. Under Help, click "Help Topics," which will bring up a help window. Next, all you have to do is right click on the title bar and select "Jump To URL." Now you can type in any web address you like, but make sure to include "http://" at the beginning. Basically what you're looking at is Internet Explorer 6 inside a help window, but this version of the program isn't quite as smart as IE6. It won't automatically add the http:// for you. And of course, there's no bookmarking feature.

Still not working. We did find it in C:/program files, however when you try and open Internet Explorer, it just says Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

or he's just not connected to your home network..

edit: the "have you tried turning it off and on again?" quote works perfectly in these kinds of situations..
