I am running windows xp sp2 home on a dell dimension 4550. When I try to run check for updates in spybot I recieve an error: socket error 10013 access denied. I also am not able to connect for updates on any other software such as avg antivirus, ewido, musicmatch, real player, etc. I can connect to the internet through IE and can recieve mail through outlook express. I've tried disabling windows firewall and nothing changes, though something else that is weird is when I open up the firewall configuration in the control panel it shows the firewall is turned off, but if you open up windows security center it shows the firewall on. Currently there is no antivirus installed, but there is an f-secure key I can't delete under the hkeylm in the registry, it says error while deleting key. Any ideas?
