    I've been lookin' around on the internet for a little while now about this problem and so far I have come up empty handed. If you can find a link to a solution or something that would be great, I'm still looking.

    Basically, all of my programs that require an internet connection for a task simply cannot find a connection. Browsers work just fine, no problems there. Programs like AIM, Winamp, WMP, Zune software etc. None of them can find a connection. Programs that don't require a connection to run work but when a task requires the internet, eg finding album art, it cannot find a connection.

    I'm really stuck on this. This has happened on a campus connection and on a local cable connection of my own, same computer. I'm stuck. :wtc:

    Negative on both. Took everything down trying to solve the issue.

    some like Zonealarm and other Internet Security suites still has some sort of influence even if disabled.

    any proxies?

    Just an update in case anyone else was having this issue. After searching for months and trying countless options over and over again that didn't work I decided to just wipe everything clean and start over.

    Still have no clue what caused it or how to fix it.
