Windows 7 Internet Connection problems with Programs/Not allowing internet access I just bought a new emachines computer with Windows 7 Home Premuim 64 bit pre-installed. Whenever I try to run a program such as, Xfire, Steam, Teamspeak, AIM, Skype, or Digital River Securom, or ANY program that requires internet access they say that they cannot connect to the internet or that i first must connect to the internet before running, and won't work. I can get onto internet explorer fine, seeing as i am on it now, and my internet icon says "Internet Acess". I have tried completely turning off my firewall and adding these programs to the exception list and still no luck. My computer is connect my DSL 2wire model 1701HG via ethernet cable. I have an older model emachines that runs Home Premium Vista 32 bit that is connected to the same router via ethernet and i have never had these problems. So i am assuming that it is a problem i am having with windows 7.
