    I have a strange (at least to me) issue. Every since I reinstalled XP media center on my system, all the program that have to connect to the internet to activate/register/update, can't. My internet works fine, no problem with connecting to any sites or anything. I first noticed the problem when I reinstalled my Roxio Creator. It has to register or something before I can use it and it will say: "connecting to server....connecting to internet to activate this product", then it gives this error: " Unsuccessful Activation There was a problem activating your product. This could be due to: An error occurred in activating your product, please try again later "

    This issue also happens with my gmail notifier, it says "Cannot connect to mailbox, cannot connect to server". When I try updating my malware detector, it says unable to connect to internet, and also the same error with anything like adobe that I try updating. At first I thought it was just a certain program, but nothing is working. I am hoping this is something really easy that I am overlooking and just needs enabling or something. Any help will be much appreciated! Thanks! :eek:

    try uninstalling roxio. this is always a good start when you have trouble with your PC (not uninstalling Roxio, uninstalling whatever program you first noticed the problem in)

    Thanks for the response. I have already uninstalled Roxio and all the other programs that are doing this. No change.
