Hey all,
Software programs (ie. Ad-Aware, Adobe) connot connect to the internet when I try and update them. I am unaware where the problem lies, I was thinking maybe in my security internet options but can't conquer the problem. Any suggestions?

If you recently installed IE7 it has been known to cause this type of problem. Otherwise, if you have a third-party firewall installed, check to make sure the programs you are trying to update are not flagged up in the firewall settings as "blocked".

Yeah, it was the 3rd person fire wall doing the damage. Is the windows security firewall sufficient enough for security purposes (for a general user)?
