Help Getting Connected

Thanks Daniel.  Is there a way to set my network settings back to a 'default' or see if they're at all 'abnormal'?

When my machine starts up, there are exactly 0 processes running that are outside the core Windows collection.  There is definitely nothing actively running to prevent the connection, and no firewall is being used.

I'm not sure what else to tell you apart from it is something related
to the machine or network; there has to be a firewall or some
"security" software that is responsible for this.
