Online backup ConnectionError3

Hi folks,

any suggestions as to why I get a persitent ConnectionError3 on running the Online Backup over the last month.

The McAfee FAQ unhelpfully says: "ConnectionError3: The Internet connection to the McAfee servers failed. ConnectionError3 can occur during a backup or a restore." It occurs as the Mozy backup tool starts the backup (having completed encoding, etc) and sometimes it does one file only and fails.

I have a 25MB cable broadband. It worked for me up until a month ago. The last change I made around that time was to reinstall my Win XP machine from scratch. I've run the Removal tool and reinstalled.

Any help welcome. Thx, Barnyard.
