I am just trying to set up my DSL for the first time.
I can connect normally to the internet with my dial-up and download webpages.
My DSL modem appears to be working great. I called my DSL's customer service, they had me do tests which showed that. I can connect to the internet.
I just can't download webpages and they said it must be something like a firewall, anti-virus, or anti-spyware program that is preventing that. I have no firewall or anti-virus on, I am sure. As far as I know, I don't have anti-spyware on. I tried many different things. I start my computer without the startup programs, but that doesnt make it work.
I downloaded and installed AVG free virus scanner and got rid of a few trojan viruses with it. I then uninstalled the virus scanner as I could not get it to shut off and I couldnt have it on. Still no luck.
How can I tell which processes running are system critical?
How can I be sure I don't have a program running that is making me unable to download webpages with DSL?
