Do you have any clue why only some of my programs can access the
internet? I do not use a firewall, nor a router.

I use Windows XP Home Edition.

However, for some reason, Windows (or something) just BLOCKS most of my
programs.

I have tried many things, and still, nothing has worked.

I would have reformated by now, but no CD came with my computer ( from
alienware ).

Any help would be great... thanks!

Well this could be use the Cause of Service Ok 2?

Because WINDOWS XP has an inbuilt firewall many unwanted problems can occur!
Try to get yourself a copy ZoneAlarm.Can be found on many Computer Mag Cd's
(FREE) This application firewall gives you full control, taking over the
inbuilt xp Firewall. It will allow you to block/unblock internet access at
will!

Get yourself a copy of Microsofts Anti Spyware Sofware (Formely know as
Giant Anti Spyware). This should be on a Compyter MAg CD as well. Install and
scan

You may want to get virus software installed to.(Virus's can be a big causes
of data transfer problems)

If your pc did not come with a cd is Windows a legal INSTALL?????????????
(I doubt it would be)

If not, being unable to install major updates is a huge loss!!!

If it is a legal install when the web is up and running get your self a copy
of
"Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder. This cool little program will tell you what
your product key is! Get a copy of XPhome and activate it with your key.

If you find out you have a illegal install/key (service packs wil not install)
threaten the company with, give me a free legal copy or I will report you to
microsoft!!

Maybe this helps?

Are you sure you don't have a firewall ?
win xpsp2 comes with a firewall, by default enabled, and you can configure
programs/ports easy enuff.
