I'm running Windows XP Pro, and I've never had this problem before, but recently none of my newly isntalled applications can connect to the server.
For months, applications like MSN messenger, and more recently emusic download manager, yahoo messenger, etc. can't connect to the server. I always get messeges saying that the connection c ould not be established at this time or "error: connection with the server could not be established".
It's pissing me off. Nothing, not even pictures will get through those programs.
I don't understand why. I checked my firewall options and all these programs have exceptions alotted for them, so they shouldn't conflict withe programs. I don't know what to do.
All the programs I've had for ever on this computer like Limewire, AIM, my browsers, work fine. I don't know what to do anymore. I've even tried disabling the firewall completely but that hasn't fixed anything.
Could it be a virus? Does my computer not have enough memory? Please help!
