I have downloaded Firefox, it will not load the home page. I have upgraded to Internet Explorer 7.0, now that won't work on any page. I could access the Internet on IE before I upgraded, but now it will not work at all. Also, I am currentally on AOL (Broadband) I still am suffering some other problems: I cannot access a site on anything that requires a password, [MSN mail, mail.aol, Cox mail, ACT sites] But others do work, [Addicting Games, Google, Myspace (cannot log in) Neoseeker] How do I get my computer to allow Firefox and Internet Explorer 7.0 to run?

Hi Dawkins and welcome to g2g,

what security software are you running? personal firewalls are one of the largest causes of this.

Go to safe mode with network. Start / Run /open=msconfig. Click the Boot.ini tab and select safe boot then click Network next to safe boot. Click OK and restart. See if you can surf and access secure sites.

I ran my computer in the safty mode last night, and the only thing that came of it was I couldn't run my computer at all, so I used system restore to fix that. Also, the only protection I have is AVG anti-virus.

hopefully you have this resolved by now, however if you are still having issues and suspect that it is malware related I would start with our malware forum and see if they can make sure you don't have any malware installed.
