I have recently purchased a new laptop with Windows Vista Basic on it and now I cant get either MSN or Yaho messenger to connect it says my firewall is blocking it so I turned everything off my firewall and turned all my internet security off and still it wont connect Ive even gone to the extent of formatting and still it wont work.

Both of these programs are in my allowed list so it shold work and both are designed for Windows Vista.

Anyone else think of anything I can try?

Thank you very much

Also just did the troubleshoot for MSN and it says theres a problem with my key ports if this helps and that I should check my firewall which I dont have one or my proxy settings?

Sounds like this could be a problem with your network/ISP (just guessing tho') - try disabling IPv6 in your network adapter and then try disabling the DHCP Broadcast Flag according to these directions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233

Please post back to let us know if this has solved the problem. I suggest this fix fairly often - and haven't had much feedback on how it works.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
