Cannot Connect in Software Talk Posted March 10, 2004 I'm not putting blame on one program or the other Mike, just explaining why I was restoring the system instead of configuring the router or the firewall. If any program is at fault its Microsoft . Based on the info supplied "I" thought it best to go back to the starting point because of the new errors encountered and then go forward. There were probably some conflicts between the two antivirus programs and they possibly had a shared .dll. When the new one was removed it took away that shared .dll causing the error. A restore would correct this. A restore would also correct the connection problem more than likely. At this point I don't know why he could not connect since the firewall was removed, blockage should have been removed and access to the internet and the network should have been restored. Guess I'll wait to see what the other Mike has for us later.
