Can anyone help pls?

Hi, I'm not sure I'm posting this in the correct forum but it might come under the heading of virii.....

I am running Windows XP Pro & 3 progs I use constantly are MSN Messenger 6, ICQ & Yahoo Messenger. I have Sygate Personal Firewall Pro & AVG Free Edition running permanently & I scan most weekends with Trend Housecall.

When I went to bed about 5 this morning my MSN was working perfectly, however when I got up although I appeared to be on MSN OK I wasn't getting replies to my messages to anyone & I found out they weren't receiving them. So I signed out intending to sign straight back in again. It wouldn't connect. I've tried various hotmail & other net passport accounts. My mate tried logging my main ID in from her house & it's connected fine, so the problem is obviously my end somewhere.

My friends can also receive messages from me on ICQ & Yahoo, but I am not getting their replies when they send them. It's not that they are ignoring me lolol we've been on the phone whilst we're trying it.

I've tried uninstalling & redownloading & reinstalling all the above & just tried to connect to WinMX but that won't have it either. Surfing, sending/receiving email through Outlook Express & java games I play are fine, so it seems that anything that needs to act as a server is just not working properly.

I ran Housecall earlier & it found 5 infections of JAVA_NOCHEAT.A & one of PE_PARITE.A. I've removed them all & my scans are running clear now.

I've even tried it all without my firewall running & still no joy. Nothing on my PC had changed from me going to bed last night to me getting up this morning, the PC was online all night as it normally is.

Anyone got any suggestions that we haven't already tried?

Cheers in anticipation - Carrie
