Although I can still browse with dial up fine, my computer will not allow me to effectively commuicate with other computers. The most common message is "can't find the other server". Anytime I try to: A. Download presentation files (egs. Real Video). B. Download statements from institutions. C. Download patches or games. D. Log onto secure site of any kind (Symantec diagnostics for example). E. Use "Get Right" download utility so that interrupted files can be restarted right where they broke off downloading. etc.
I've tried turning off all firewalls and blockers of any kind. It makes no difference. Double checked my isp's ports and stuff.
I did remove hp backweb, could that have caused it? It's and HP pavilion 7955.
Can you help me? I have and have run, Norton Systemworks 2005, Norton Firewall, (I've disabled the Windows firewall), run spybouncer. I've no spyware, viruses or worms I can find with these.
Thanks :tazz:

If you can browse the internet . . . .

Google: "HP backweb" & read some of the hits . . .see if you can relate to what they are saying . . . .

Then. . . . . .

You may want to post your problem on: "Malware" section of this forum
and get someone from Staff to help you

Was doing some research on that backweb . . .

seems that it is an: "internet speed up" application?? here is a quote from a Forum (?) on the subject:

"Most of the servers that Back Web tries to communicate with have not been active for over a year or more. Although the IP addresses are still owned by an Asian company that promotes itself as the marketing company of the future. So to avoid internet connection slowness, it is best to at least remove BackWeb from startup, and/or to just remove it. Have never heard of "real" updates using these services, other than a few ADs for a few updated or related products. HP systems often have two different versions of Back Web on them. One as part of the HP package and another for the Mouse driver package. "

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Perhaps it may be obsolete/expired pages in your "internet history" . . .
that your browser is trying to connect with.??

I had a problem where I could not connect to certain web pages because: My browser was trying to use "old/expired" pages & could never connect. . . .I had to clean up my internet history

I would type in a new www.XXXXX.com & it was determined to go the last old/expired page . . . . .

Could be a similar problem. . . .anyway Staff can still help you. . . .

Might want to give them more details. . . .Computer - Browser - ISP -
and what you can & cannot connect to.

Just a thought
