I suspect that you still haven't identified the essential details
about your symptoms. For example, another user complaining

BTW I am having to resort to Google Groups instead of the MS Communities
links that I would normally prefer to use because nobody bothered to vote
for any of the posts in that discussion. Hence it got aged out of the
Communities archive. ; ] Perhaps your EggHeadCafe archive still has
that discussion in a more readable form than Google Groups?
Also, I have no experience with Vista. In case there are any better
diagnostics in it than the netstat and tasklist commands I suggested,
I am cross-posting to the Vista Networking NG.
