As soon as ESS was installed the little double screen in the task bar informed me that I had no connectivity via my ethernet port. After a bit of a play around involving switching my DSL modem off then on, trying to play with some of the settings in the program I eventually uninstalled ESS. But even this, plus a reboot, didn't solve the problem and I only got my connection back when I did a system restore (thank God I set one) from last night and now everything is working again with v2.7 My questions: What did ESS disable when it installed? Was it part of the FW that did this? (I suspect so) and has anyone else had this problem. I must admit that I did check one button as part of the install and maybe this caused it. However, I can't remember exactly what it was. I'm prepared to reinstall but won't until I get some answers about this problem.
