Correct I’m in NZ and with Ihug.
Yup, same here, everything was fine till Wednesday/Thur this week, then I noticed everything came to a standstill.
I rang Ihug 3-4 times to ask if there were any probs. And they said no.
They told me to do this and that (ping them from the cmd prompt, it was fine.).
When this do protocol analysis was enabled, (it was fine prior to Wednesday/Thursday), I couldnt go anywhere or do anything.
Windowsupdate site gave me an error, which meant I had a misconfigured firewall, or a proxy (I dont use proxies).
I couldnt receive emails, and programs that are installed, couldnt / wouldnt update at all.
And the shield thing for XP updates wouldnt appear previously either (but now it does).
It wasnt until I noticed in the logs, this protocol thing was blocking things. When I killed do protocol analysis, everything started to move again!
I even formatted, coz I thought I was the prob. But it wasnt until I reinstalled Comodo, u guessed it, the prob was back (until I disabled do protocol analysis again).
BUT yer, I would say Ihug have done something, they just wont tell you!
So, hopefully unticking do protocol analysis doesnt affect us (there’s 2 of us here), in any way
Or some sh… is gonna hit the fan (with Ihug).
