IF01651  We have three computers all running XP home. One of them has "lost" the windows media player. I think probably as a result of a virus.  I have tried to download and reinstall media player (both media player 9 and 10) and get the same error message.

IF01652 
I have a question I hope that someone can help me with....I just recently bought a laptop, and I donít really know much about computers so I thought that with a laptop I could go on the internet anywhere that I'm at and not have to plug anything in (like dial up), but now I see that is not the case, so Iím confused, I thought laptops were supposed to be wireless. Is there something that I need to do or get to be able to connect to the internet without having to dial up? and I want to be able to take my laptop with me to Europe when I go on vacation this summer, would I be able to do that and how would I get an internet connection?
