comment PING cmd request timed out for all websites but sites are accessible through browsers
It sounds like either your wireless settings in your router or computer are causing the issue. Without know the model of your router it is hard to suggest what settings to check. I would guess it is in the router causing the problems. Maybe try posting a question to their forum and see if the router has a setting that could be the problem.

Can you try connecting directly to your internet without using the wireless router? Basically if possible plug the wire from your DSL or Cable modem directly to your laptop ethernet port and see if you still timeout. That would likely narrow down if it is the router or your service provider blocking the ping.

PathPing appears to ping each node which of course won't work since ping fails. What is the output from a tracert request?

Can you give a bit of details about your network environment? Is it a corporate lan or home? Do you have a router or proxy connected?

comment Powerpoint forces random date in footer when including date and time
Just tried this on the same setup (PowerPoint 2003/ XP) and couldn't reproduce it. Is this possibly happening because of a company template? Are you sure the "fixed" date field doesn't have a predefined field that when you activate the "Update Automatically" it doesn't get activated as well.

comment How to record DirectTV HD DVR to a DVD or PC?
Please clarify the question. Are you asking to record the DVR->DVD or copy DVD->DVR? Your wording is a bit unclear.

comment How to get around proxy server
Unless they have started blocking your specific IP address (which could be gotten around with a proxy) then they are likely looking for VPN traffic directly. The only way then to work around that would be encryption, but as other have mentioned your best bet is probably to ask the IT department.

comment Excel displays ### for long text - what's wrong?
You can also try clicking the "wrap text" and "shrink to fit" options under formating to get the text to fit.

comment Is there a way to thoroughly clean a new installation of Windows?
Agreed but I like to err on the side of caution. But you are correct normally the checks involve the key vs. the hardware.

Unfortunately the branded computers usually provide recovery disks not real install disks so you can not really mess with the image.

comment Is there any known exploit that enables computer infection through media files (image, videos and audio)?
I hate this type of question as I always wonder if I am helping a potential malware author.
