I recently got a Lenovo x200 Tablet PC with vista business preinstalled. It was working fine for a while but then some problems started appearing.
First of all I can't download any torrents on it, it says "No conenction could be made because the target machine actively refused it". I know this means that the server refused the connection, but when i tried it on my Windows XP machine, it worked perfectly. (Yes I did change the port forwarding IP address).
Also some internet sites wont work, but they will on my other machine. all the error messages i get have something like "the connection was refused" and something about "winsock" in them. But they all work fine on my XP machine.
I can access the itunes store, but cant buy anything; can download the steam HLDS update too, but can't download the content; and no program can check for updates. they all say that the connection was refused. All of the above work on my other pc.
I am running Outpost Firewall Pro 2009 and Norton Internet Security on both machines (I am required by my school to have norton installed). Outpost is my main firewall. I always keep Norton disabled, as my school only checks that it is installed, not if its on.
Does anyone have any ideas of what is causing this. It is really annoying and i really need to be able to update some software?
thanks in advance
