Yesteday, my internet decided to crap out completely. I can still connect to the router, and the internet works fine on this computer so i know all thats find, which leads me to believe it is something specifically wrong with the computer.

In a bid to find out what was going on, i opened the security center to find that norton was my current fire wall. News to me! I thought i uninstalled norton a long time ago, so i started to uninstall it, and low and behold... INTERNET!

Today, however, i cannot get any websites to load/sign into msn neither can i access the security center, it simply tells me it has failed to start when i click the icon in the control panel. Restarting fails to do anything at all.

Please help!

Run the Norton Removal Tool to get rid of any last remnants of Norton.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
