I am operating on windows XP.

While using Microsoft Outlook I am able to send messages but get and error message while trying to send. I have checked and tested the settings in outlook and they all come up good (incoming and outgoing). Message " Task 'mail.comcast.net - sending' reported error (0x800CC13) : ' Unable to connect to the network. Check you network connection or modem.'

I have connection to the internet and can browse without any problems.

All of my virus and spy-ware software will not update. Most of the time it states "connection failed"

Any ideas of what may be going on?

Can you connect to Windows Update? www.microsoft.com?

Access regedit?

Could be firewall related. Check your program access settings.

You might be infected if your security programs wont update.
