With the W7 firewall turned on:
Restart your computer.
Then try to get to speedtest.net.
Let us know the results.

You should consider following these steps when posting an image to this forum:

...and external storage places might delete the image someday.

Yeah. I am able to access speedtest with the firewall off/on now. I don't know what caused it to start working again.

But i seem to be having issues with connections and a very slow PC, im really considering a clean install of windows 7 seeing as i have the disc still and i really dont mind. Ill just take care in what i install from now on i think. Is there a guide around on this site that will help me with a clean install?

This guide doesn't show me how to completely get rid of everything and install as if brand new.. I feel at the point of when you get to the partitions it should say something about formatting or whatever? Because all it's done is just install windows 7 In the same place again.

Hello Matt,

It sounds like you selected to install Windows to another location other than where your current Windows was installed at.

At steps 7 and 8 in the tutorial linked above, it'll help show you how to delete the disk that your current Windows is on until it's unallocated.
