    Hey guys, gonna cut to the point :p

    Previously our house had 5 pcs....Now my dads GF moved in and she has 3 kids, i was set the task to build three. Which of course i did (gotpayed which helped), now this is where the problem is. All 3 work completely fine... but on one of them i couldnt :

    1) activate windows using the internet
    2) play online games (tried the sims)
    3) use any kind of msn messenger

    Now the interent works fine, i can recieve windows updates etc....

    Im completely clueless in what it could be. Any ideas? Im on 10mb NTL and Two of the pcs run of a switch, one of which works, and one which cant access msn etc..

    Many Thanks in Advance...

    Josh

    Firewall (Windows Firewall?) turned on? Try turning it off.

    What error does MSN give you for example when it doesn't connect?
