Hi all, I have a computer here that can't download or update anything. You can't download files using IE or FireFox and you can't update ANY anti-virus or anti-spyware program. But! I CAN browse the internet just fine and can go anywhere I want to. I've tried doing a repair install of windows, sfc /scannow, removing smitfraud and vundo (because the computer is infected still, at least I would still assume), I've tried a different network card, I've tried repairing the connection, uninstalling and reinstalling the device, but to no avail. Sigh, any ideas?

Thanks,
Kickehy

Do you get any sort of error messages? How far in the download process can you get?
Regards,

when you click on any download link it does absolutely nothing...nothing pops up or anything...the spyware programs (like spybot etc.) say that i'm not connected to the internet


NOTE: so i got it to download...but i still can't get the spyware programs to update
