    this one has stumped me??? (not hard)...

    Installed XP 64 and upgraded to IE7 - the 64 bit browser gets right on the
    internet no issues - when I launch or windows launches the 32 bit version
    the 32 bit browser times out (going to the same page)? In addition, I am
    having trouble with all other programs reaching except the 64 bit browser
    getting to the web - I have verified connectivity and as I mentioned it works
    fine with 64 bit browser - did the same thing with IE6.

    I think I must be missing something... I have turned off the firewall,
    flushed the DNS, reset the router and modem multiple times? I am running out
    of tricks?

    No you happen to have a board with nVidia chips?

    If you do have the nVidia chipset, you will have to install the supplied
    firewall, and then uninstall it from add/remove programs. This has been a
    fairly common problem.

    Open 32-bit IE, go to tools/manage add-ons, disable all add-ons,
    close IE. Reopen 32-bit IE, if it responds normally one of the add-ons was
    the cause. Enabling each add-on one at a time will isolate the conflicting

    John -

    Yes I do have the NVidia chipset - Whose firewall do I install then
    uninstall? I am assuming you mean the one that came with the motherboard
    I will check the CD for it - if you have a link to DL please provide - thanks.

    BTW - I tried disabling all the add ons and that mode no impact.

    I don't have a link, but it is a question asked during the install of the
    chipset drivers, if I recall. You could look on nVidia site for the latest
    chipset driver package.

  7. The firewall is the nVidia "Network Access Manager".

    If you have installed it already - it is a question asked during the nVidia
    chipset driver installation - uninstall it.
    If you have not installed it, rerun the installation package and say yes
    when asked and then uninstall it by modifying the nVidia driver installation
    in Add or Remove Programs.

    The latest x64 nVidia drivers are the 6.86, released July 7 2006, from
