Installing game doesnt allow net access

Ok..this makes no sense to me at all. My friend installed Real War on his computer and the game works great in single player mode but if the game is installed his internet connection doesnt work. He cant use IE and cant connect to AIM either. He's uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times and its the same problem each time. As soon as he uninstalls the game his internet connection works fine. Anyone have any ideas?

BTW..he's using WinME...PII...333Mhz (a little below system requirements i think but the game works offline perfectly fine)

first thing i'd do is take a look at his network settings and write them all down before installing the game.

then install and take another look and report back here what is getting added or changed (or taken away). this includes tcp/ip settings and dial up settings (if applicable).
