    Blocked Internet Access For Updated Programs

    Hey guys,

    I'm running Win XP SP3, and since about 1-3 months if i had a program with access to the internet and updated it, then the access to the internet is blocked so now if i want to update my game i cant because then i wont be able to play online etc. i had this problem since i had a virus on my computer, im not sure if this is fully gone, it is still there or that there is something else that is causing the block. And also if i check the firewall exceptions they are there. i tried removing the exception and adding it again thinking it would only let the old version access internet but that didnt work. PLEASE guys help me get rid of my problem its really ruining my interest in computers. If anybody has the answer post it ASAP please.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ch33ks

    Why don't you do a clean install of Windows XP SP3 on your computer? That would be better and there would be no virus left. Just take backup of your important stuff and repartition the entire disk...

    malware antibytes is antimalware application, avira is one of the good antivirus but all this security application need each day update from internet for latest virus detection. Avira having Anti-Spyware so you no need any other application for spyware ..
