    Turning off "Work Offline."

    I can't access the Internet because I am listed as "Working Offline." I have
    accessed the "Windows Task Manager" and clicked "End Task" for "You are
    offline -Windows Internet Explorer." Yet my status remains as "Working
    Offline" and I can't get on the Internet under my personal login. The
    computer modem is working becasue I can access it when I login under another
    user.

    What is the best option for me to turn off "Working Offline."

    Open Internet Explorer>Tools(in right-hand top corner)>Menu Bar>File>click on
    "work offline" to untick it.

    Tools>Menu Bar is if you do not already have "file, edit, view, etc"

    In Internet Explorer, hold down the Alt key and tap the "F" key to open the
    File menu, then click the "Work Offline" entry so it is no longer checked.
