Have spent 10 hours with Lenovo guys on the phone - no solution. Let's see if I have more luck here.
A while back my connection to my automatic web backup stopped working (Carbonite). They have not been able to figure out why. Now I got a virus and discovered that noone can remote access my computer (security settings do not seem to be part of it, have tried with all of it off). Computer is set to allow remote access as well as the programs being allowed past firewall. I attemted to switch servers from Explorer to Firefox and guess what, it can also not connect.
The messages I get make it seem that I am not connected to the interned, which I am. I am running on Vista. Any ideas?
