I bought McAfee Internet Security 2010, installed it on mycomputer, and now I cantt get on any websites. I can connect to my , but whenever I try to visit any website -- Google, Facebook, whatever -- I get an error message. Maybe it's a firewall thing. I have no clue. Very frustrating. Anyone have a similar problem?
Try going to your internet connection in Windows Explorer or on the Taskbar and right-clicking it select Repair.
Or try this quick fix: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html
There may have been some minor infection or a corrupted key present when McAfee was installed which it may have removed as an infection during the installation process.
There is also a Microsoft article here: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=299357
