Hope the info helps. dozer167

I don't know if I should have started a new topic or tagged on to this but here goes.
I upgraded from the old security to the latest. When I restarted I could not connect to my home network and therefore get the Internet. I contacted help who put me through to the next level of help. He did not try to help me but tried to sell me a contract for technical support. I am a pensioner so could not afford to take the extra expense. I phoned next day and got help but was eventually abandoned. Unless I pay for expert help my PC is not usable.
Has anyone had the same experience as me regarding losing a home network after installing the latest security and can anyone suggest a course of action to get back up and running.
Thanks in anticipation.

Sympathy! I suggest a total uninstall of VMS, using the links in the FAQs at the top of this forum. Then use another free security suite. For suggestions, see Sololobo's excellent post in this forum, "VMS alternatives". http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Internet-security/VMS-alternatives/td-p/948139 . These work just as well (or usually better), are just as free. I use AVG but MSE is highly rated.
Of course, to do that, you need to get on line. If, as your post suggests, you can't do that, perhaps you can do a "system restore" which will return your pc to the state it was in some time ago, depending on what restore points you have available. You should then be able to get on line and follow the suggestions above.
The alternative would be a system recovery but you will probably lose some or all of your files depending on what sort you choose and you'll need to have your recovery disk available. It's a last resort.
Hope that helps.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused. Can you please advise are you connecting wirelessly as you mentioned "home network"?. Have you tried connecting via an Ethernet cable?
Have you tried safe mode to establish a connection?
Upgrading to the latest version of Virginmedia security should not have stopped your connection.
To remove VMS without a connection. You will need use of some kind of portable media (usb stick / portable harddrive / disc), in order to download the VMS removal tool from this section off another connection and be able to then transfer this onto your PC.
Once done please can you call us free on 150 from a Virgin landline or on 0845 454 1111 (chargeable). For Technical support to assist via remote access to resolve this issue.
