Unable to connect after XP-sp2

  mikegm7 20:14 06 Sep 2004

I have just downloaded SP2. Unfortunately I found I then had problems connecting to the internet through my Netgear Router. Didn't want to know. So I have now used a Restore Point. The 'new' setting with sp2 just caused me problems. Would it be best to download sp2 then remove Netgear and reinstall it as a fresh on top of sp2?

Did you have the red Security Center warning icon in the Notification Area? I upgraded a laptop that connected wirelessly through a router. It would not connect because Security Centre did not recognise that Norton was installed. Sorted by disabling Security Centre.

Start, Run, type in


and click OK. Scroll down to Security Center and double click it. Click the Stop button and set the Startup Option to Disabled. Worked for me.
