It sounds like a firewall problem to me also. Now that Windows XP has a firewall in it, after you install another firewall, such as Bit Defender Pro Internet Protection, it is easy to forget to disable the Windows firewall.
If that doesn't work, try disabling the Bit Defender firewall also. If you are able to connect then, you will need to change some of the settings in the BitDefender firewall.
I currently use BitDefender and I llike it. So I don't see any reason to get rid of it.

Get firefox and Sygate Personal Firewall. Disable the builtin windows firewall and the BITS service.

    Boot off the XP pro cd. When it asks for which partition you want to install onto, select your main partition and press 'D' to delete the current partition, then follow the prompts to create a new partition in its place. It will no longer complain about previous versions being installed.

    WARNING: this will wipe all the data off your PC.

    Optiarc DVD+-RW AD-5540A decoder


    If you are using windows with anything less than windows vista Home Premium or Windows Vista Ultimate, DVD capabilities are not built in. For example if you using windows XP or vista home basic DVD will not play. You need a decoder. You have a few options. 1. Buy a decoder pack. 2. Download a DVD player software like cyberlink trial version, install it and check how it is functioning for a few days. Buy and install a DVD player software. However, if you upgraded your compuer recently by adding a DVD drive, you may have recieved a Driver CD disk. Check that disk. check whether a trial version of any DVD player software is included. Most chances are there will be one. Once you got everything fine you can call the customer support for the DVD player software and if you are willing to pay, they will provided you with a key or serial number that will change the status of trial version to a fully working version.

    I can not scan from my 2610xi photosmart printer. Says I need to install the software. HELP!!


    Have you tried updating the drivers from HP's website? I know when I recently upgrade my Internet Explorer it for some reason messed with the software I had installed for the HP Photosmart 2610. I reinstalled the software and uploaded the most recent drivers and eventually got everything to work fine again. So I am wondering if maybe one of the patches/upgrades the Microsoft sends down may have messed with your software as well....Hope that helps.
