For the past few weeks I've had a helluva time getting Guardian started. After I click "start Guardian", many times I've gotten an error msg. that "Guardian cannot connect to the remote network, etc. etc." I've rebooted numerous times, stopped and restarted Guardian, and sometimes Guardian connects just fine, many times not. Meanwhile, I can connect to the internet thru my browser just fine. Also, whenever I DO get Guardian connected, logging into X-Trader has been an add'l problem. After I start X-Trader and login, the main X-Trader toolbar just disappears. This doesn't happen every time, but it happens. After login I've seen Xtrader show up as "not responding" in the Windows Task Manager. I've changed routers, rebooted the cable modem, perfomed a clean install of the OS last week (W2K Pro), you name it. I thought the fresh install fixed my problems but tonight I cannot get Guardian started. Has anyone had any similar problems? I have a nearly identical computer which connects to the internet via BellSouth DSl with no problems at all. I've been trading on the problematic computer with X-Trader for 2+ years without a problem until now. Ideas/suggestions? I'm pulling my hair out.
