Here I am with my 8 month old, custom Toshiba laptop, and its great. My only problem is after last year in college almost none of my programs that need to access the internet can find it. My university requires us to run their firewall program in tandem with symantec anti-virus. It was only after using the firewall software that programs like, Internet Explorer, Skype, iTunes, Symantec Live Update (how ironic?), and a few others could no longer find the internet connection. The only programs that recognize my internet connection are firefox and aol IM. Also interesting, the programs didn't stop working overnight, it was gradual and it happened one-by-one, not all at once. I've uninstalled the firewall software and nothing can find the internet still. What the hell am I supposed to do?? I've tried checking program permissions but I cant find any permissions related directly to internet access through windows firewall. I'm running Vista Business. Anyone have ANY ideas???
