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.
