My internet explorer does not let me go to any websites. It says, after I diagnose the problem, that it cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS, FTP. Probably caused by firewall. ( I have turned my firewall off.) HTTP port (80), HTTPS Port (443) FTP port (21). I have been trying to fix it but just cannot. Please help.

1. Click Start>Run (Start>"Start search" in Vista).

2. Type in (or copy and paste):

cmd /c ping google.com>%temp%\$.$&notepad %temp%\$.$

and press Enter.

3. Notepad will open.

4. Copy all text in Notepad ([Ctrl-A], then [Ctrl-C]), and then post it (paste = [Ctrl-V]) in your next reply.

I have the same problem. When I try to
ping www.google.com
I get a message saying "Ping request could not find host www.google.com. Please check the name and try again".
I am able to use skype, but I cannot access any websites or check my mails with thunderbird.
I have gone through this thread and tried everything, but nothing works. Could someone identify the problem?

TIA.
