Edit: I am running Vista Home Premium with all the latest updates.

I can not make a FTP connection on this computer. These are the things that I have ruled out:

Router. I have multiple routers to my disposal and on each of them I have connected all four of my computers. Also I have tried a direct connection to the modem and to the other computers while running an FTP server. This is the only one that does not allow me to use FTP.

Software Firewall. I have disabled and uninstalled all security software on this computer.

Specific Servers. I have tried multiple including ones locally hosted.

Specific Programs. I have used 3 FTP different programs:

FlashFXP

WinSock 2.0 -- OpenSSL 0.9.8i 15 Sep 2008
[R] Connecting to 192.168.1.43 ->IP=192.168.1.43 PORT=21
[R] Connection failed

FileZilla

Status: Connecting to 192.168.1.43:21...
Status: Connection attempt failed with "EACCES - Permission denied".
Error: Could not connect to server

SmartFTP

[23:11:32] Connecting to 192.168.1.43:21 Port: 21
[23:11:32] An attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions.
[23:11:32] Client closed the connection.
[23:11:32] Connect failed.

Remember this is with any server, all of which can be connected to on other computers in the same network using the same router. This is the only one of the computers running Vista. I have also tried running the programs as an Administrator and I've tried running them in Safe Mode with Networking.

Go Start>Run (Start search in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (in Vista, while holding CTRL, and SHIFT, press Enter).

At Command Prompt, type in:
netsh int ip reset reset.log
Hit Enter.
Type in:
netsh winsock reset catalog
Hit Enter.

Restart computer.

Do you have any other internet issues on that computer.

See, if same thing happens in Safe Mode with Networking.

No other issues with the internet to my knowledge. I haven't been able to use FTP on this computer for quite a while (months maybe) but I've only now begun to try to work out why that is.

I've already tried Safe mode with Networking and I meant to include that in my original post. (Same Results)

Where do you actually try to connect, because 192.168.1.43 looks like your router IP?

Various places, 192.168.1.43 is my third computer that I run FTP server software on (and can access from my second and fourth computer).

I can produce the same results with ftp.microsoft.com or any other freely accessible server out there.

What AV program and what firewall did you used to have?
What are current security programs?

The only security that was ever on the computer, I believe, is Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and it was put on there pretty much day of it being built. I removed it with Kaspersky Removal Tool.

Does it mean, you don't have any protection now?

I keep Vista's firewall on until I need to test FTP again. My router has some built in protection too but I can quickly make a direct connection when I need to.

I'd suggest, you start new topic in malware forum to see if your computer is totally clean.
