I just changed from a wireless ISP to a cable ISP. I have two computers. One has XP Pro, the other XP home. Both have Security Shield 2008 virus progam. Both computers were working fine with the wireless connection. Now, the computer with xp home will not open several websites to banks, paypal etc. The computer with xp pro will. All the personal internet options or settings are the same on both computers… the security shield settings are the same. I turned off the Security Shield to see if the fire wall was blocking my computer from loading these websites and the results were the same. When I by-passed my Linksys Wireless B 2.4 ghz router, and hook directly to the computer with xp home, it still will not load the programs. Obviously something is wrong. I have made contact with Tech. Support from both Security Shield and the cable ISP. The security shield tech said that since I turned off the program and the computer still will not load the sites, it’s not their virus program. The ISP tech said it’s the Virus program.
I’m not sure what to do?
I did read that my router may not be the best and that thought that maybe I should upgrade to the Linksys G model.
I did disconnect the modem also and this did not solve the problem.
I do know that all worked fine before switching from a wirelss ISP to a cable ISP.
I would really appreciate any suggestions to help me out.
