      You don't ned to install anything from the SKY disc. Just connect to the router and off you go. IE7 can then be installed through Windows update.

      Do you intend connecting with ethernet or wireless?

      You state you have just formatted, is your network adapter installed?

      Forget the "install disc" - it is not necessary!

      I presume you have SP2 installed? If so download IE7 here.

      Download details: Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows XP SP2

      You can activate windows over the telephone on a freephone number

      Just choose by telephone rather than over the internet

      edit: Sorry I meant activate ignore my post

      Right, so shall we dismiss SKY support and the instalation disc (as I suggested earlier), get you online, and then install and validate whatever you want (provided your Windows install is genuine)?

      Please answer the following.

      What is your operating system?

      Have you installed all drivers after reinstall?

      Most importantly, is yout network adapter installed and enabled?
