Did you try to connect while it was disabled?

Wow, that fixed it. Any ideas why that happened all of a sudden?

Firewalls can sometimes do that for unknown reasons. Add your IP to the exception list. Can't remember what it is called in McAfee.

Not really, but if i must... I just posted a reply to a previous comment on this thread without seeing the 2nd page where the issue was resolved, I could not find a 'Delete comment' option, nor could i edit the post as blank so i had to say something... "Strange things are happening to me " i felt was intreguing and a good depiction of my own personal oddities.
