THANKYOU all so much! I can on-line bank again (lol)!!! (not that I'm too lazy to go downtown).
I finally got my machine tuned back into shape and I'm
ashamed to say, that in the end...after 18 days, and hours upon hours of trying all of your suggestions,
I reread every piece of info and realized I still had the expired Norton firewall on and immediately after removing it and starting up again...ping, ping, pong I'm up and away! Of course I have this 4inch x 4 inch Mcafee advisory in the right hand corner of my screen and I can't read anything in that corner. I guess thats the next thing I get to 'play' with.
I thought I'd also let you know that error number 80048820 is also associated with 80072ee7
(I found a ton on google with my same problems).
Thanks tons all. Don't really know how to chat in the forums or rooms yet but I'll do this new topic thing when I get caught up to my missed "computer-work". Thanks again, Judi

In a lot of cases Norton Internet Security or Norton AntiVirus are the cause of the 80048820 error.
