Can't Get WebService to run. (was working previously)

The following is the error message when I try to call the simple web service function echo():
            [WebMethod(Description="This method returns what was sent.")]
            public DataSet echo(DataSet rq)
                  return rq;
This used to work fine.  I have tried disabling windows firewall.  Using AVG free, and spybot.
Doesn't seem to reach the code on the "server" side - both the client and server are the same machine (localhost)
The error message:
Server Error in '/ThelenWebTest' Application.

An established connection was aborted by the software in your host machine
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

I think this is do with the firewall it self check the suggestions here

The best one in you case may be

"This is bcoz of the  antivirus which is blocked by the windows firewall, just add the antivirus to the windows firewall ,in windows firewall  Exception tab -->AddProgram and select the antivirus which is installed in your system .. this will solve the prob for application .."
