Onecare firewall prevents any packet exchange?? RRS feed

  • Question



    I have a Sony Vaio laptop with Windows Vista business and OneCare 1.5, it was working perfectly fine for the trial time but as soon as I bought the product strangest thing happened.

    One in a while, normally every day, the system stops send and receiving packets, even if I use different network card, switch to LAN for instance. I even install and reinstall the drivers. Logging out doesn't help either.

    I tried to use wireshark and no packet is sent or received.

    When I tried to narrow down the problem, it seems that disabling firewall before it happens helps...

    Notice if I disable firewall after this strange phenomena it doesn’t help at all.

    The only way out is rebooting system which is really frustrating..
