I just completed a reinstall of my gaming desktop PC, downgrading from Vista to XP (or should I say upgrading ;) ?).
Anyway, I first installed Comodo Firewall but Steam and Xfire had problems connection.
I uninstalled Comodo and installed Zonealarm.
Still the same thing.
I uninstalled Zonealarm and am now using the default Windows firewall.
I already ran WinsockXPFix, flushed DNS, using OpenDNS Dns server instead of my provider ones but still no luck..

Steam and Xfire won't connect, I get a connection error.

Please tell me what this could cause since I can't play games right now ;)

Thanks.

SOLVED !: Peerguardian 2 was blocking all traffic to Steam and Xfire networks.
Solution: Turning off Peerguardian and adding steam and xfire's ip's to the allowed list.
