IE does not connect, but Outlook, Firefox and Google Chrome work f

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Skytigger, Jun 23, 2010.

    I am at a loss to find a solution to this problem. I cannot get online with
    IE7 or IE8. Firefox works fine along with most other programs that require
    internet access. I have tried uninstalling IE, using a different version,
    deleting all add-ons and cookies, resetting default settings. I've scanned
    the computer using a couple different virus scanners and scanned using the
    Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. Nothing has worked.

    Any suggestions?

    • Which version of the Windows operating system am I running?
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...-of-the-windows-operating-system-am-i-running

    • Is my PC running the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows?
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/find-out-32-or-64-bit

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2) as well as your current IE version (e.g., IE6,
    IE7, IE8) when posting in an IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in
    your next reply.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    No but I'm having the same issues so I wonder if you use AVG?
    Do you have multiple users on your system with others beside the current user still logged on?

    I did use AVG, but replaced it with Microsoft Security Essentials. I only
    have one user on my system as well.

    Operating system is XP 32 bit. Norton and AVG was installed, but uninstalled
    and using MS Security Essentials now.

    This happened to me on Windows 7, MS Support tried a load of things
    such as unintalling and re-installing IE but what worked for me was
    this:

    netsh winsock reset

    ....which I found eventually through Google.

    I didn't (and still don't) use IE that much, but it was really
    frustrating whilst it lasted so I hope this trick or something else
    will soon fix you up.

    WinXP SP2 or SP3?

    Had the Norton free-trial or subscription already expired before AVG was
    installed?

    Was the Norton Removal Tool run before AVG was installed?

    See...

    Can I install Microsoft Security Essentials [or any other
    anti-virus/anti-spyware application] to clean up my already-infected
    computer?

    Thanks. I'm trying to find some common cause. I also am running XP SP3 and
    also have no problem with Firefox or even IE7. Please post here if you find
    a solution.

    Thanks for that. I won't bother replacing AVG with MSSE as was
    recommended.
