Windows 7: Win 7 & Outlook Connector & HP Update issues

Win 7 & Outlook Connector & HP Update issues

Have just installed Win 7 HP 32 bit as an u/g to a HP dv6000 series laptop with Vista HP 32 bit and Office 2007. Firstly Outlook Connector no longer connects (either wired or unwired) saying that I have no network connection although I am simultaneously connected to a Google web page. I've uninstalled/reinstalled/repaired Outlook Connector but to no avail.

I have a similar problem with HP Update which also stalls and advises "No internet connection" when I'm again simultaneously live with another webpage. I have tried with and without other web pages being open but it makes no difference.


As for HP I understand that although the dv6000 series specs are acceptable for Win 7, HP is not providing Win 7 support, so that cud be an explanation for the HP Update problem. However, I have seen threads on other forums about network/internet connectivity issues with Win 7.

Any thoughts will be appreciated

Pedro

Thx for your thoughts. PCs never cease to astound me. This morning I tried to set up Windows Live Mail, while simultaneously already connected to a live unconnected web page. WLM told me I had no internet connection and I would have to work offline. Oulook Connector (Vn 12.0.6423.1000 as d/ld from MSFT website 2 days ago) also was still not working.

Anyway, I didn't do anything in particular, other than sync my other email account into WLM and suddenly, everything was working properly, i.e., OLC with Outlook 2007 and Hotmail, WLM was sending and receiving and HP Update also worked properly (d/l'd OK but installation failed). Let's hope it continues as I've seen many reported problems on the web with Win 7 and internet connections.

Regards
