I don't know Mc Afee can you try to change brige mode networking for NAT

Bridged networking does not work if McAfee HIPS 7 is installed (1038431)

To workaround this issue, either remove McAfee HIPS or change the networking type of the virtual machine from Bridged to NAT.

To change the networking type of the virtual machine, see the Workstation Help topic Add Virtual Network Adapters.

If you have an antivirus/firewall on Win7 try to disable it and restart the VM.
I add the problem with NOD32

Make sure you have installed the VMWare tools inside Ubuntu.

Hi Bxoz,

Isn't it possible to connect to the internet while antivirus is running, I have Mc Afee anti virus , is there any way to make an exception for ubuntu running on top
of the VMWare ?

Thanks,

I've never had any problems running my antivirus tool and Windows 7 Firewall on my system, and getting on the internet with my VMWare Player guests. But I use a good AV tool (Panda Cloud AV, as it is a private environment, the free version), and of course, you need to install the VMWare tools within your Guests to get full support.

Hi!

Maybe you could try VirtualBox instead of VMware?

Is your vm guest able to ping the gateway? Is it using dhcp? What is the network config of the vm guest and the host?

You you need to provide more information.
