    Tried-

    Tried dis-connect,and re-connect still no joy.
    Just had no trouble installing Avast A/V,with no problems,and installed P C Tools firewall,also no trouble to connect.
    All a bit confusing?

    Sounds like an icompatible software package. Try uninstalling both the firewall and spybot search and destroy and then reinstall them in compatibility mode of vista. I have found several instances where those software say they install correctly and dont.
