    First off, your HJT log is clean.

    It does show the Trend firewall as being active.

    O23 - Service: Trend Micro Personal Firewall (TmPfw) - Trend Micro Inc. - C:\PROGRA~1\TRENDM~1\INTERN~2\TmPfw.exe

    The firewall is run as a service and therefore, you would need to stop the service. However, I don`t recommend you do this as then your system would be open to attack.

    Is there any setting within the programme to make it work with the firewall?

    Regards Howard :)

    i contacted my I.P for tech support. they tried to do a check on my pc ports and discovered that they couldn't. something was completely blocking access, even with my av prog uninstalled and windows firewall off. i discovered that the programme that i was having a problem originally was able to connect,running in 'safe mode with networking', so the problem was in the windows firewall. it was telling lies, when it said it was off!!! done a system restore and it is now cured!!:bounce:
