I am at a loss as to how to isolate then correct the issue of not being able to establish a successfull connection to any type of P2P site. These sites include but are not limited to Limewire, MIRC, any torrent site, any online multiplayer game site. Additionally I am given a failure message when I attempt to download certain update and install files ie. from the Microsoft site I cannot update my DirectX driver files. I get a failure message stating that the installation failed and to try again later or check my network connection. Any assistance you can offer to help remedy what seems to me to be a security issue would be greatly appreciated. Please advise me of the path to any info files that you require that I can forward to you to ensure an accurate and complete diagnosis. Thank you for your consideration in this matter.

Please try the following:
Arrow Click on Start, then Run
Arrow Type in cmd and press Enter
Arrow You should now have a new window open (Command Prompt) - Type in to this window cd desktop and press Enter
Arrow Type in tracert www.limewire.com > trace.txt. (I am assuming www.limewire.com is a site that you can't load, if I'm wrong replace with a site that doesn't work)
When this comes back to the command prompt, you should have a file called trace.txt on your desktop. Copy and paste the contents in to your next post.
