Hello,

I am Windows Vista Home Basic on:
Processor: Pentium(R) 3.00ghz; 1GB ram; 80GB HDD; ATI Radeon Express 1100.

I use Norton 360 for anti virus etc, which now does not loadup on startup.
I then could not get connected to the internet (I am still able to download and install Windows updates)
I can still use Windows Live Messenger and I can still access the internet via my laptop.
I noticed a problem in Device manager (Microsoft 6to4 adaptor, which I uninstalled and re-installed, ok)
I have tried turning off the following:
Firewall
Internet explorer settings etc, without any sucsess

Has anyone had this problem before or know how to resolve it?

Download, update and run these both.
