last post I got about the administrator login etc has me totally confused. Now I have no idea what I am doing and why. can you give me a little background on what is causing my problem and what these steps we are going through is trying to accomplish? Thank you SO much for everything.
May I temporarily refer back to my previous post.
It appears that the MVPS host file did not install properly OR if it did it has not fixed the problem,
as happyrock posted
if you want to see if the hosts file loaded properly click on this link http://www.doubleclick.net/
you should get a blank page (all white)and at the lower left side it will say done
and you replied that you DID NOT receive that response.
I therefore would like you to reset the host file to the deafult using the Microsoft link I previously sent.
We NEVER actually established that you did not have a line in your orignal hosts file causing the orginal problem.
AS on my post 42
To deal NOW with your actual question.
1. Have you tried the Norton - disabling.
It is worth a try.
2. Re if both of those are not the solution tried ONE at a time and test after each then
Using the built in Admin Account will eliminate the possibility of this being caused by another program, setting, registry key value on YOUR User account.

CAUTION I stressed ONLY to go to a trusted site like Windows updates.
NOT TO BROWSE the internet.
If that does not work, I would disable your Norton Internet Security. HOWEVER then ensure you ONLY go to a trusted site, such as Microsoft Updates.

I would completely uninstall NORTON and install your choice from these
I personally use Microsoft Security Essentials on all of my five computers.
It has NEVER let me down, but that said, I do not subject it to the extensive test of AV software by visiting doubtful sites.
I also use Web of Trust.
You will need to run this to ensure that all of Norton is removed.
I would be extremely interested to see what happens if you do as I suggested and try the Admin account BEFORE yo do all this and see what happens there.
