  1. Hi Friends,

    I have my Sony VAIO - VGN-A5175 - with windows XP home edition.
    From several days, can not connect with my wireless internet. Other computers can connect , but not mine. So not the problem of router. Also tried Wireless USB, but not working at all.

    - I can see its connected to the internet, but nothing is opening.

    - Msg appears when trying to check windows firewall "Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service on Local Computer.Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified."

    - Tried to download Superantispyware - but Can not download even from the DISC. I had AS Antihacker - antivirus - Scan whole computer with it - no threat found.

    - Can not download anything at all... Also tried to copy in my DVD - for back up - not working as well.

    Please help me, My knowledge about all these is quiet basic. I tried my best to explain u, If you could help me, friends ...

    Thank you in advance.
