Hi, all. I'm using Windows XP Home SP2 and am connected to the internet through a shared router (via ethernet cable). All firewalls (except the router's firewall) have been disabled.
If I put a password on my account (administrator) on my PC, I'm unable to connect to the internet. All network connections are fine - nothing is dropped or missing. Once I delete the administrator account's password, internet connection is back.
Does anyone know if there's a work around for this? What are the security risks if there's no password on the administrator account? Thanks for your time and help.
