FIREWALL DEAD, or other network issues: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892350 MS antispyware tool disables Windows Firewall: Start>Run cmd [enter] netsh winsock reset catalog [enter] Follow prompts and reboot. The above fix only works on a machine that has SP2 installed. If it is pre-SP2, use the WinsockXPFix.exe program (one place you can get it is http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html). If that didn't work, see if registering the following DLLs helps: From Start/Run, run the following commands: regsvr32 %windir%\system32\atl.dll then regsvr32 %windir%\system32\hnetcfg.dll regsvr32 %windir%\system32\netshell.dll regsvr32 %windir%\system32\netcfgx.dll regsvr32 %windir%\system32\netman.dll Then do a reboot.
