Windows 7: Internet Connection limited

Internet Connection limited

A few months ago I installed Norton Antivirus. Immediately after I started using it I started having issues. I would try to open programs, usualy Firefox, and it won't open. Sometimes absolutely nothing would open and i would only be left to switch off the computer and restart. My subscription expired to Norton so I took the opportunity to switch to another antivirus. I switched to AVG and immediately after doing so absolutely nothing was capable of connecting to the internet, except for IE. I completely uninstalled and removed AVG. Problem remains. I've also disabled the Windows Firewall and still IE is the only program able to connect to the internet. I cannot find anything that is preventing these programs from connecting.

Hi DashMordecai. I had a similar problem some months ago: after uninstalling Norton Antivirus, I had no internet connection. To solve this, run a fix restore point. Then download Norton Removal Tool and run the aplication to uninstall your norton antivirus.

Thanks very much for the help. Unfortunately I ran the Norton Removal tool and also found and ran the AVG removal tool and the problem persists.

'limited connection'
I installed windows 7 32-bit RC on my PC yesterday and all is fine, except for my connection. Whenever I try to connect to my Wireless network, it says there is 'limited or no connectivity'. All my WEP settings are correct and the diagnostic said that the IP Config was wrong. What to do?
