I use Trend Micro Pro and all works fine, I can e-mail, see newsgroups, the
web, but Ping does not work.

It shows 0 seconds, 4 packets sent, none received.

Is ping even ever important?

try pinging
yahoo.com

Just did, got response.
If you can't, must be something on your system not allowing certain
outbound functions.

Course, if everything else works, doesn't really matter.

Pinging does not work on Yahoo either. Everything else works.

WHAT is Pinging actually used for?

Reading these abstracts I come to the conclusion that not "pinging" might
actually be a good thing to evade viruses etc. Right?

It has nothing to do with malware.

Most of us use Ping to test the basic functionality of our network.  Ping
sends an ICMP packet with the correct type to a computer.  If all is well,
the computer
responds with a ping reply packet.  ICMP packets are used for quite a few
purposes, thus if you cannot ping a remote computer, what else can your
network not
do?

Re: Trend Micro Pro and cannot PING

+I do not know what it CANNOT do.

I tell you what it CAN do:

Email, send and receive
Access Newsgroups and add new ones
Access web sites
Use IE and Firefox
See CNN videos

Is there something important I am missing?

Pinging is generally only used when diagnosing other network problems.

Most likely, you have icmp packets disabled in the windows (or other)
firewall, or being blocked by a router.  The firewall most likely has
seperate settings for ping request outbound, and ping reply inbound, both
of which, would have to be enabled.

Unless you are interesting in learning more about network troubleshooting,
it doesn't matter.
