Hi, I have a toshiba laptop and for a while now niether chrome or skype connects to the internet. I have allready checked the firewall (I use windows firewall) and changed the rules, changed the name of the programs to create fresh rules and deactivated the firewall and microsoft security essentials without any success. Not to mention reinstalling both chrome and skype.
The "symptoms": when trying to browse with chrome I get the error message error 10 (net:ERR_ACCESS_DENIED): unknown error and skype just won't connect.
One peculiarity is when the windows firewall is deactivated it says that these settings managed by McAfee Personal Firewall. But McAfee has been uninstalled a while ago since the trial period ended I have though found some files, folders and drivers
containing the name McAfee. Might these files cause the problem?
