Update of Firewall

  yattonharry 16:35 02 Mar 05

My 1 year old computer operates XP Home and I ran SP2 this January. Prior to this I updated Sygate Personal Firewall plus AVG and defragged.
Today I have updated Sygate to vers.5.6 and when asked if I wished to 'Run', this I affirmed. I also said 'yes' when asked if I wished to keep previous configuration. Download duly finished and I went to Security Centre and switched off the Windows Firewall (it said that only one Firewall was necessary).
I now find that I am 'unable to establish a connection' when trying to connect to the internet and a 'page not available' appears as a response on the screen.
Any help gratefully received.
Many thanks.

when you updated sygate, its best to right click on the sygate taskbar icon, go into applications and remove everything in there to start from scratch. Maybe you tried this already?

Many thanks for your quick response and I have done as you suggested, clearing the Applications. Unfortunately, however, that has not resolved this problem.
Your advices are much appreciated.

Try this.

Download and save (not run) Sygate to a folder.

If you haven't already got CCleaner click here

Come off line.

Uninstall Sygate

Run CCleaner including the Issues Tab.

Re-install Sygate from the folder in which you saved it.
