    I just bought the ESet security package.

    Everything that accesses the internet works, EXCEPT IE and Outlook Express. I turn off the FIREWALL, and they work.

    I do NOT have any other AV or firewall installed. Windows firewall is OFF also.

    I did have NOD32 installed, but removed it.

    I did nothing at all to BLOCK IE and OE Express.

    Help please. IDEASo_O

    Solution

    The problem was AdMuncher. A program I installed long ago that I used with dialup. Recently cable finally arrived, and I forgot to remove AdMuncher because it's really not necessary anymore for speed and blocking ads.

    Anyways, I uninstalled AdMuncher and ESET SS works great now.

    Old version of Ad Muncher

    It was a very old version of Ad Muncher. Program probably hadn't been updated in 2 years. Like I said, I forgot I had left it installed.

    All is good, glad everyones is working now. :)
