Re: google problems
Try to delete Temporary Internet Files. Login in with your moms account or have her do it. Goto control panel> Internet Options > under the section "Temporary Internet files" > delete cookies, Delete Files, When prompted, check the box to "Delete all offline content". Then clear history.
Still not working?
Can you connect to the site "http://www.google.com"? Or is it only after entering a search then hitting the search button to load the next page?
So your running two versions of the same Operating System on two different partitions on the same machine?
Or is it just one OS with different users? because if so they still havnt kept you off the the Operating System partition...
