Since I have installed Windows SP2 I have been having numerous problems.

1. GlobalScape Cute FTP: It wont connect to any site i have on the Site Manager. I allowed it via Windows Firewall and it still won't connect. I have check out several forums and they simply told me to do what i already did. Allowed it via Windows Firewall.

2. NetMeeting: People cant connect to me, no idea why this is happening. It used to work perfectly before SP2. And it is also allowed via Windows Firewall.

Any solutions to these problems please let me know.. Ty =)

Are you using another firewall as well as the windows one?

IMO, the windows firewall is pretty useless, you would be better off disabling it and using Zone Alarm.

BTW, I had numerous problems when I first installed SP", in the end the only way was to do a complete system re-install (a lot of work, but worth it), if you do go down that road, reinstall XP, then install SP2 on top before any other software. ;)

If the problems started when you installed SP2, I would get in touch with Microsoft.

I've been this route with Microsoft before (video driver problems) and their first question will be...Are you sure that all of your software is certified for use with SP2.

Most of the SP2 problems that I've seen weren't due to SP2, but were due to other software on the system that wasn't able to work with SP2. And, there's a lot of it out there!.

Further on in the troubleshooting process they'll have you use sigverif.exe and verifier.exe to check for themselves - and then they'll know if you checked or not.

Generally the best solution that I've found for this is to update all your drivers and software (since SP2's been out for a while now, most everything updated has been fixed for it).
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.
