I have an HP computer with XP Media Center OS. For 2 days now it will only connect to the Internet in Safe mode. I am using PCcillin 2006 AV, it has not blocked Internet access. I downloaded & ran the AVG 7.5 Trial, it found some tracking cookies but nothing else. I have another computer, running XP Pro, on a LAN with this computer that connects just fine. My Windows Firewall is turned off, my PCcillin firewall is functioning. Would appreciate any help or suggestions you guys might offer.

***I solved the problem by reinstalling PCcillin. The firewall had glitched somehow. When I turned it off & turned on the XP firewall I could connect to the Internet. Thanks anyway.***
