Can't access internet with MSE

I installed Microsoft Security Essentials yesterday and now this morning I haven't been able to load any web pages or download emails.

I tried turning off the MSE real-time protection and it worked.

What could be going on here and how should I resolve it?

never heard of that one before .......do you have any other antivirus etc programs installed ?

Well I wouldn't say it's MSE. Do you have Malwarebytes anti malware ?? if so run it. Are all your lights on, (on the modem) etc

from what site did you download mse ?

I did have Norton installed but I've since uninstalled that.
It can't be the router/modem as I have a laptop here working fine.

I use wireless and the connection is connected and strong.

I don't have Malwarebytes.

It is an odd problem isn't it. Also, if I load a site,such as Facebook and turn protection on, I can still load other pages on that domain, but not any new websites. It's like some sort of filtering problem...

did you use the norton removal tool to uninstall norton or just 'programs and features' (vista/win7) or 'add remove programs' (xp)

I used the Norton unistall option and chose to remove all settings. Thanks drcspy I'll give that app a go...

Well well well, it worked. Thank you very much! :)

norton isbitch of a program and it'll leave crap all over your system if it's not uninstalled correctly.........you MAY have to INSTALL norton again in order to correctly run the uninstaller and remove ALL the rubbish....
