It is *possible* that the Panda firewall was not disabled and the
winsock stack was damaged.
Try rebuilding it since doing so will cause no harm
DISABLE the Panda firewall first, please. Either consult the included
Help file|User guide or Panda's web site to learn how this is
accomplished. *ENABLE* the native XP firewall if the system will be
connected to the network|internet when you're doing this.
Open a Command Prompt
Click Start > Run > type in
Click OK or press Enter
At the prompt, type in the following, pressing Enter after *each command*
netsh winsock reset
Reboot the system and see connectivity if is restored.
