Help Please!!! Eclipse/SDK/ADT issues

Hi, my name is Valerie and I am new to helloandoid. Thank you very much for this forum.

First let me say I am on Windows 7 Home Premium service pack 1, 64 bit; my browser is IE9; and I tether onto the internet via USB with my smart phone.

My intent is to do java/android development using eclipse.

I have recently installed Java SDK 6 32 bit, Eclipse Helios 32 bit, and Android ADT. When I launch eclipse I am no longer able to access the internet using my browser. I am forced to close my eclipse, kill task adb.exe, then disconnect/reconnect my USB connection to the internet.

Any idea where the problem is? This occurs with firefox also.

Thank you in advance,
