    Since we don't know what operating system and Service Pack level you
    have and we also don't know what "numerous ways" means, try this:

    FIREWALL DEAD, or other network issues:

    MS antispyware tool disables Windows Firewall:

    Start>Run cmd [enter]
    netsh winsock reset [enter]
    Follow prompts and reboot.

    The above fix only works on a machine that has SP2 installed. If it is
    pre-SP2, use the WinsockXPFix.exe program.
