Vista Home edition 1. What McAfee programs are installed, and which version?
McAfee Security center 7.2
Virus Scan 11.2
Personal Firewall 8.2
Spam Killer 8.2
Privacy Service 7.2 2. Are you able to identify which McAfee program is the cause of the issue?
Not tried 3. What version of LimeWire (Pro) are you using?
4.12.11 4. What ports have you configured for LimeWire? Does the issue exist if you try different ports?
Yes 5. Opening ports in the McAfee Firewall:
tried, when I got help from McAfee they configured as well the Netbios ports in the system service tab of the firewall. It worked *shortly* but with the next connection and start up of limewire my connection got disconnected again. 6. What other solutions / work-arounds have you tried already?
Pretty much everything that someone has suggested here or at other places. No help!!
PS. On Lime Wire » Support
"Many Windows Vista computers that come with McAfee Firewall lose the internet connection when running LimeWire. This is a McAfee bug, not a LimeWire bug. Contact McAfee's support for an updated version of their software."
What do they know that you do not know?
Any help is appreciated!
