Internet connection problems under sp2

  Madscot_uk 16:14 07 May 2005

I have recently upgraded my pc resulting in a complete re-intallation of windows xp pro. Before installation of sp2 my internet connection worked fine (bt internet broadband), after the installation of sp2 i can still connect to the internet and autoupdate still works, but i cannot get ether IE6 or mozilla firefox to access the connection. Can anybody help? I am using standard zonealarm firewall and the windows firewall is off.

sadly the problem still remains. Ie6 will load up my start page ( and then becomes inactive altho it hasn't crashed in task manager, firefox diplays a pop-up window stating that the address cant be found, when trying to add a passport to my account it states that it cant due to a bad autoupdate appears to be the only programme capable of accessing the internet
