I had this problem a while back and it drove me mad.It turned out that for me it was Norton's Firewall that was causing the problems. Tried different ways of setting up the firewall to no avail so ended up removing it and using McAffee instead. No problems since.Infact noticed an improvement in performance!

how do i find the firewall in xp pro to disable it ?

I don't know about XP Pro but one way in XP Home is
start/control panel/network connections - right click your ISP's logo choose properties/advanced and ensure that 'enable firewall protection' is unticked. If you mean a third party firewall then that's a different process.

Three threads this morning is a it greedy Bugsy. Have you downloaded SP2 by any chance mate?

Go to start, help and support and then type in firewall into the search bar at the top. It`s all there. iambeavis`s suggestion is there too.

Try getting in touch with Hotmail.
