Problems conecting to messengers

I have a problem with the firewall I think because it won’t let me sign in to yahoo messenger and msn messenger and it says to check the firewall.
I didn’t changed anything to the firewall so I don’t know what’s the problem.
I have the save problem with Comodo Dragon, it opens but tells me something with proxy server.

Thank you!

It sounds like you have a proxy server set. Does this happen with other browsers or internet accessing programs?

Can you check? Go to Control Panel → Internet Options → Connections → LAN settings. See if a proxy server is set. If so disable it. Then try again.

When that does not help please post a Hijack This log.

I checked and I don’t have any proxy server set :frowning:
I have the same problem with Internet explorer.

Here is an Hijack:

There are various things to notice. First a question. Are you running Comodo Firewall only without the AV?

I see you have Avast Antivirus running in the background. Also there are Super Antispyware and Viglance antipsyware. I would say start with disabling Super Antispyware and Viglance from running and see if that helps.

I see a set of unknown Name Servers:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip..{4C56C806-011E-4390-ABB6-A6556E7E79C2}: NameServer =
They are related to a domain in Romania. Are this the DNS servers of your provider? What DNS servers are currently set on your computer?

I see traces of Styler and Zinga toolbar. I don’t know them? Are these toolbars you use?

The games from gamesdesire are games you installed?

To what program is rds.lnk pointing:

O4 - S-1-5-18 Startup: Shortcut to rds.lnk = ? (User ‘SYSTEM’)

Is this your desktop image:

O24 - Desktop Component 0: (no name) - file:///D:/TEMP/msohtml1/01/clip_image002.jpg

Can you also show me a screenshot of the firewall logs? They are under Firewall → View Firewall Events.
