Can't visit websites after installing McAfee

I bought McAfee Internet Security 2010, installed it on my Windows XP computer, and now I cantt get on any websites. I can connect to my wireless network, 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?

Re: Can't visit websites after installing McAfee

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

Sorry to take so long to answer you but we are rather busy.
