Try a different tack? Does the Kaspersky product have any diagnostics
built into it? If so, *enable* its firewall and find out what it thinks about
Alternatively, was that firewall ever active? If so, perhaps its disable command
is not sufficient to undo its interference. Try _removing_ the whole product?
(Make sure that the Windows firewall is active before connecting to the Internet.)
Another approach--better diagnostics but still fairly simple--would be to install
Fiddler2 and see what it thinks is happening to IE's requests. In that case
you would see the requests from IE being received by Fiddler. If they weren't
being accepted further down the path it would be a case of whatever is blocking
them would in fact be blocking Fiddler, not IE.
BTW another tool I have seen recommended but which I have not yet tried
This setup program installs the latest version of HttpWatch Basic Edition.
It is fully functional but only displays extended HTTP information
for a limited number of well known sites.
I guess if you can't connect anywhere testing one its "well known sites"
might help. Otherwise be prepared to pay big bucks for its full features. ; )
The most transparent way of getting some useful diagnostics for this
that I know of is to capture with netcap (e.g. from XP Pro's Support Tools)
and then formatting its .cap files with Ethereal.
Note: I don't use Vista and don't know if any of these tools work on it
or if compatible equivalents exist.
