Re: Services won't run, no networking.
Thanks, Peter. I was trying to avoid having to re-install Vista but there
seemed no escaping it. Now that I've reinstalled (over the existing
installation), the problem has changed, but not gone away. The services seem
okay now--Network Diagnostics runs, and does not find any problems.
However, I still can't get full network connectivity. I have an IP address
(on my LAN) and can successfully Ping both LAN and Internet sites; DNS
resolution works fine. However, I cannot access LAN resources or Web pages
by either URL or IP address (though for some reason, I can actually get to
HTTPS pages). When I run Outlook, it can see and report the number of
messages pending on my ISP's server and their size, but cannot download them.
