Suddenly can't play multi-player

Thanks for the suggestion.
My partner downloaded three files and copied them to me on a memory stick and we both removed all traces of the old installations and re-installed just now.
The files were:
setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe
patch_heroes_of_might_and_magic_3_complete_2.0.1.17.exe
HoMM3_HD_latest_setup.exe

Again, we tried with all firewalls turned off for the best chance but it still hangs at 'receiving map headers'.

The odd thing is that when she installed, they created a folder called GOG Games and when I installed the same setup file it created a folder called Heroes!

Sorry - duplicate. No way to remove a post?

We both cleared out everything from previous installations and installed  identical files on both machines:
setup_homm3_complete_2.0.0.16.exe
patch_heroes_of_might_and_magic_3_complete_2.0.1.17.exe
HoMM3_HD_Latest_setup.exe

But still no luck - hangs at the same place .

Any other ideas?

Background
My partner and I have been playing HD+ multip-player recently with an ethernet cable.
After a week's break we came back to it last night and can't make it work.
As far as we know we haven't changed anything in that week.
The only thing that has happened is that my partner's FB account was hacked multiple times in a few days. That's now resolved but maybe a virus altered something we don't know about?
It's also the same whether it's a new game or calling up a saved one.
We can see when a game has been hosted by the other but after the second player joins we get the 'sending map headers' message and it hangs (at least 15 mins which is the longest we've waited).

Specs
We're both on Windows 7.
Both have the same version of HoMM3, HD+, HD5.0 RC94

What we've tried
We have tried everything on each machine (either of us hosting, etc.) and it's the same whoever is doing what.
We have tried with all firewalls turned off (Windows Firewall, Windows Advanced Firewall) and checked sharing options in the Network Centre/Adapter Settings/LAN/Sharing are set to 'allow'.
My partner has re-installed the mod and re-booted her machine but I haven't (re-booting mine is a nuisance on mine as I have many work programmes open all the time).
And to complicate things today my HoMM3 has stopped working solo - I get to 'Start' and then it hangs.
We've run out of things to try.

We'd really appreciate any ideas.


You should check if H3 is the only program that behaves weird. Who knows, maybe the virus affected more programs, in which case I would advise to back up your data, reinstall Windows and install all your programs back.

Try webarchive on the current download page to download older versions.

Didn't work, only 3.58f is available. Even all the links on the old strategyplanet.com are dead. Anyway, it doesn't matter, I was just trying to see how it looks for fun.

You can try using SOD_SP plugin for HD mod. It shows spell duration and does a lot of other interesting stuff but it only works for singleplayer
