Windows 7: Win7 & XP network issue ?

25 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Pro 64bit SP1

PROBLEM SOLVED...!! Thanks for all your effirts aem...learned alot thru your answers.

I started thinking about the fact that the alptop used to run fine before my W7 isntall on the desktop. So what did I change ?? I didn't beleive anything on the destop would affect the laptop..but then I remembered afafter W& was up and running on both home desktops...I turned to the laptop. Uninstalled a number of old things...inckluding Trend Mico Fiarewall and Spyware Doctor 6.1 w/antivirus.

The system must of done a restore point for these uninstalls...because a found one a couple weeks ago that I don't remember creating.

Anyway...the restore reinitialized both Trend Micro Firewall and Spyware Doctor. Re-uninstalled the TM Firewall service...and everything was ok.

Re-uninstalled Spyware Doctor and my connectoon prolbems returned ? Re-installed SD and still had problems. After this..SD would not let me uninstall again. Found lots of people/posts saying they too were having trouble un-installing Spyware Doctor with little if any help from PC Tools. Found a third party free uninstall utility on the net that unitsalls programs and program registry entires....and after uninstalling SD...with this program...and network connections were working fine again ?

Don't know what Spyware Doctor did or was doing regarding networks (no Firewall settings)...but uninstalling and cleaning registry fixed the problem.

Thank you again for helping with this...
