I run XP home sp2 via a dlink 624 router and recently noticed that my ewido update couldn't connect and also that itunes wasn't bringing in song titles automatically. i upgraded to sp2 in early jan '06 and these problems may have appeared after this. i've tried opening ports and turning off the firewall but to no avail. i've read other threads but don't seem to be able to shake off the problem. otherwise all seems well internet works e mail ok. the only other recent install was a netgear sc101 networked hard drive. this seems to be in a world on its own and tends to be a bit flaky. i downloaded an ewido update from their site and ran that which gave a couple of problems which it sorted. i don't browse dodgy sites and ewido and adaware only ever report minor cookies etc. i think this must be a setting somewhere. i've attached a hjt log for good measure and hope you can help.
