Windows 7: Win7 all outbound blocked except Explorer, Win Firewall seems okay

01 Jun 2010   #1

WinXP Win7 OSX10.5
Win7 all outbound blocked except Explorer, Win Firewall seems okay

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit ZT computer from Costco wireless connection
Laptop Windows 7 works correctly on the same network
Comcast Modem Cisco wireless router

Windows 7 Firewall turned off, same results
No other firewall running
Win Firewall reset to defaults and the below listed programs show as exceptions.

AVG Free can not update - with error message
Windows Live Email cannot send or receive (two new accounts tried)
Quickbooks 2010 can not update - with error message
Firefox 3.63 can not connect

Explorer works, accesses internet and can download

Malwarebytes found nothing
AVG Free found two problems in Old Computer Transferred files
A UofWA guy installed things (UWSophos, bluetooth, Clearwire)
These were uninstalled.

CCleaner cleaning and registry ran.
Defraggler ran

Again Win Firewall seems set correctly, no other firewall installed.
Any ideas? Did not check proxy settings.

Is there a log that may point the way?

Windows 7 x64 finally!

Hi David, welcome to the forums

I looked briefly at UWSophos, and I suspect it might be the problem. Are you able to revert your system to a restore point prior to the UWSophos installation? That would guarantee no traces of it

What other anti-virus do you have, if any?
