    Hi,
    I've been having problems with some programs I use (or used), which all don't work anymore, stating that either I have problems with my firewall, or that my proxysettings aren't set up correctly. These are the programs I've had problems with: Mozilla Firefox, LimeWire and Windows Live Messenger. So just to check I turned off my firewall (just Windows Firewall), but that didn't help. Then I tried having the firewall turned on, but adding the programs to the exeptions list, didn't help either. I'm afraid something much more fundemental is wrong with my firewall and/or Windows settings. Is there a way to check that my settings in Windows and/or Network connections is default or at least fine?

    Sincerely Christopher

    do you get any connectivity at all? if not you should try winsockXPfix.exe

    Do you get internet access through a proxy server? If you do then you definately need to check that the settings are correct. If you don't then you need to make sure that they are blank.

    Yeah I get connectivity. The weird thing is that my MSN messenger worked fine, until I tried to install Windows Live Messenger. When that didn't work, also due to firewall and/or proxysettings, I installed the old Messenger again, but this time it gave me the same error as Windows Live messenger. Isn't there a way I can make my internet and/or Network settings back to default?

    This is my logfile from the MSN Messenger error:

    Yeah probably, but I also have Kaspersky to deal with them. Something is interrupting my computer and is blaming it on my Firewall and Proxy settings. Just don't quite know what to do with it. Should I repost on Windows XP forum?

    LOL I can think of some analogies but this is a family forum. Your reasoning is flawed. I have anti-virus so its okay to use something that easily infects my system?

    Here is what I would do -
    Run ad-aware,spybot, ewido, virus scan,hijack this and post a log. Also look for ALL Antivirus software and then check each one for firewall software (multiple programs have firewalls built in a sort of "suite" if it has a firewall UNINSTALL don't just disable them).

    Also make sure you only have one firewall running if you do have multiple programs that have a firewall and that means XP firewall too.
