Hello
Hopeing someone can help me out here. Pretty long story sorry. I had an 9 year old PC which sucked and was slow and it got a Trojan and a Worm virus on it, I couldnt access hotmail, bebo or Microsoft from that PC. So I brought myself a great new desktop which of course has Vista on it, plugged it all in and assumed that those sites would work (as thought it was old PC and virus which restricted me before) BUT it still does the same thing.
I can not access hotmail or bebo, I cant download Adobe flash player or reader and when I try and download MSN it says 'can't establish connection to server g.live.com'

I am using Telstra Broadband and only have one PC connected to it, I have tried configuring the router/modem thing but nothing works!

Does anyone have any clues as to why this is doing it? I thought it would be simple plug in new pc and go for it.

Please if someone could help I would appreciate that.
