Hello I Installed "Comodo Firewall" and the other stuff that tag along with it" and immediately uninstalled it using Revo as it Trashed my Computer (Win XP 2006 Dell (Inspirion) After that I rebooted. It was still slow and not loading pages so ran CCleaner and then I noticed I could not update CC nor connect to any net, bookmarks or shortcuts, nothing. So I realised I had a big problem when I tried to do a "System restore" and there were no System restore points and System Restore was turned off? Not by me" that I would have any reason too?
I have been using Revo and CCleaner at least every fortnight for the last 7 year's" they have never caused me any concerns, they just do what they are supposed to do.

I tried to download some "metadata" for an eBook file in "Calibre" and it wouldn't, nor would it download a "book cover" that's when I noticed an "Error Port 1080 is Blocked". I have just Run MWMB's and Avast full Scans, both in "Safe Mode" and there is nothing at all showing there!
So I am using another computer to contact you guy's, can someone offer any help Please, Dazza

Port 1080 is used for proxy service. Are you using proxy software? Are you behind a router?

Hi Bleepin' Animinion, Thanks for replying. I am using a "Billion" Wireless G, VoIP, ADSL Router, My ISP is "Internode" the only reason I Have a Home Network is my Wife's iPad, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3110.

In Network Connections Properties>
Client for MS Net is Checked

File and Printer Sharing Is Checked (Though no printer is installed)

QoS Packet Scheduler is Checked

MS TCP/IP version 6 is checked

Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)is Checked
-------------------
IN Network Connections:
LAN Area Connection .....LAN high Speed Internet...Connected Firewalled/

Local Area Connection on Billion Wire Router Inter Gateway....Disconnected

And I have tried to repair this and restart it but it won't?

So that's about it" I have rebooted the Billion I don't think I am working under a Proxy :unsure: Dazza

Is your machine the only one that does not work for downloading etc. through the router? Are you connected wirelessly or wired to the router?

Lets try and isolate conclusively which device is causing your error. Power down your device and another device that works fine and are both using hard wired ports on the router. Then swap ports in use on the router with the two devices. Then power up the two devices. If it is the router, the problem will follow the port. If it is your machine no change will occur. Let me know what you find.

Try creating a new Ethernet connection. Make sure you restart once you do create a new connection.

Animal I don't know what you mean as in "create a new Ethernet Connection?" when I set this all up about 2 months ago" my ISP did it all with me over the phone.

I thought that I was already doing what you have just suggested: ADSL cable > wall to plug on Router > Yellow Ethernet from Port (1) to the Dell (MY) computer > Blue Ethernet cable Port (2) on Router to the Acer (Son's) Computer
This had all been working perfectly (Both together)since Boxing Day until the Comodo Firewall thing on my (Dell) the other day and then after I had removed The "Comodo Firewall" and its stupid accessories I had "no restore points" and the 1080 blocked error, :unsure: Dazza

You can take a look here at the process of how to create a new Local Area Connection. How to Configure a Local Area Connection

Sorry Animal but that didn't work. It's still got me puzzled why there are two LAN connection Icons in "Network Connect" window and the Second Icon is a dud it say's it is "not connected" and if I right Click > Properties it just opens and Say's LAN etc and if I click on the "Settings" Box all it has is Services > Select the services running on your network that Internet users can access? Maybe I should ring my ISP tomorrow and ask them What do you think Dazza

Let me solicit some input from some more experienced network oriented staffers. Please be patient.
