Hey guys, so I've been happily running Windows 7 for a few weeks now, and for for the last 4 days I have ran into a weird connection issue.
My Windows Live Messenger will not connect and gives me the error as shows in the attached image.
My Windows Sidebar Gadgets will not update.
Photobucket/Mediafire will not upload files (but FST will ).
My browser/uTorrent work fine, and speedtest reports my upload and download speeds as typical for my connection.
I have tried/checked:
- Date and Time are correct
- All "common" internet settings seem to be in place
- Disabling Windows Firewall
- Registered softpub.dll
- Unplugged/restarted modem
I am pretty stumped on what could cause this, any ideas guys?
