Man, the official Emule board sucks. They hardly ever respond - and if they do it's dumb questions like, "do you have a low ID?" or "can you access the internet at all?". Anyway, I have tried everything - yes, everything that is obvious and that I could think of (change ports, no router, no firewall, no AV protection, windows fw off, etc...)! I cannot connect at all and upload/download is zero. Perhaps someone here has another idea?

OK try this LK.
Now i know you have got the XP firewall disabled,but for some reason it sometimes still blocks ports even when it's disabled.I had a problem for days with Flashfxp not connecting to port 21,eventually i fixed it by doing the following so it may work for emule as well.
Make sure emule is not running and then go to control panel > Windows Firewall. On the advanced tab hit the Restore Defaults button. Then on the General tab put a check next to Off (not recommended) and then hit OK.
Now restart emule.

Well, I sort of fixed it. It seems something was corrupt in the Emule's config file. I still have a low ID but at least it's connecting - before it just flat out refused to recognize any servers as valid - and would say so - even after downloading a new serverlist and dropping it in to over write the old one.
I wanted to try what you suggested but I get this error:
