    I take it you have tried to reboot the PC a couple of times.
    Also try going into explorer from within Windows explorer, as it might be that the icon link has broken rather than this being a virus.
    Have you run your virus checker and checked that the firewall is set to allow internet access?
    You could also reboot the router if it is a separate item as this sometimes freezes.
    Finally when you get on line download Firefox and use that, much less susceptable to problems than IE.
