Maybe you need to reinstall winsock. This is usully only a problem when you upgrade from Vista but it's worth a try none the less.

1. Click start, type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe, click Run as administrator, and then press Continue.


2. Type netsh winsock reset at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Note If the command is typed incorrectly, you will receive an error message. Type the command again. When the command is completed successfully, a confirmation appears, followed by a new command prompt. Then, go to step 3.


3. Type exit, and then press ENTER. You should be prompted to reboot, if not you should reboot and test.

You never mentioned that you have done this. The help here is only as good as the description of the problem and the fixes that you have tried.

If it were me I would have reinstalled by now.

I was able to fix the problem. I de-fragmented my harddrive, ran a registy cleanup program, uninstalled Norton and rebooted. Now my "fn+f12/13" doesn't work (increase/decrease volume).
