Windows 7: Outgoing Requests Blocked on Various Programs (Inc. Windows Update, Zune, Picasa...)


19 Jan 2009   #1

Windows 7 Beta; Mandriva Linux 2008.1
 
 
Outgoing Requests Blocked on Various Programs (Inc. Windows Update, Zune, Picasa...)

Hey all. Here's my problems
In Zune Software, I can't login to the marketplace/social
In Twhirl (a twitter client) I can't login to receive my feeds
In Picasa (A Photo Managing Software) I can't login to upload photos to a web album
When I try to sync the time server, it can't connect
When I plug in new hardware, Window's can't connect to find drivers
And Lastly, when using Windows Update, I get an infamous '80072EE2' error

So, in short, SOME of my programs keep having their outgoing requests or connections blocked. My internet works fine. When I play games it connects just fine. When I use and IM client it works fine. But for these programs...not so much.

And the worst thing about it is that it's effecting more programs. Picasa and Twhirl we're working last week shortly after I installed Windows 7

Anyways, I've tried a bunch of stuff already:
Disabling Windows Firewall, Enabling it with the specific programs allowed through, disabling anitvirus in addtion to firewall, switich the firewall programs, telling IE to auto-detect my proxy (I have none), going thru cmd prompt and resetting the proxy (still don't have one), system restoring to when I first installed the beta (when Twhirl and Picasa worked) only to have them stop working

Oh, and I connect to my network wirelessly through a Linksys USB-G receiver, which gets the signal from a Netgear router, which is hooked up to a cable modem

So, to say the least, I'm stumped. And if ANYONE could help me out here, it would be AMAZING. So, thanks in advance for any and all suggestions, help, tips, etc.

I'm able to login to the Zune marketplace and download podcasts/music etc. Do you have the latest version of the Zune software?

However, I haven't been able to get my Zune to sync. I tried running the program in Vista compatibility mode. No luck. Can't find any info on getting it to work.

Close the Zune client software, disconnect the Zune, restart the client software (right click on the shortcut -> "Run as administrator").

a few suggestions:

1.Try running the above programs in compatibility mode and/or as Administrator.

2. Keep Windows Firewall on, Open Control Panel - All Control Panel Items, Windows Firewall and select Restore Defaults. Now open your apps and if asked to allow or block, choose "Allow", of course.

3. Disable or uninstall any third-party firewall/antivirus program, if any.

I ran all 3 of the suggestions and the following happened
1. No effect except for Zune, where the library discovered itself twice somehow.
2.No effect
3.No effect

I just ordered myself a firewire backup drive, and when it comes in this week, I'm just gonna copy over all my music, docs, etc. and reinstall Vista, as this only seems to be getting worse
