I have a gateway laptop running Windows XP with Internet Explorer 8. IE and some other apps no longer connects to the internet, although some apps do, e.g. Atomic Clock.

The error message is: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

I ran the diagnostic for conection problems and got the following report.

There was a pop up message after that that said:

Cannot connedt using HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP. This is probably the firewas seetings on this compyuter. Check firewall settings for
HTTP port (80)
HTTPS port (443)
FTP port (21)


I turned off the firewalls (Windows and Symantic) with no luck. I also ran Adaware, Malwarebytes, Symantec antivirus. Still no go. I'd appreciate any advice you have.

Thanks,
Ted

How to capture an event log and upload it to the forum: NEED APPLICATION EVENT LOG
  • First, open Event Viewer by clicking Start -> Run -> type eventvwr.msc and press ENTER.
  • In the Event Viewer please right click the requested event log (i.e. Application, system, etc...) and click Save Log File As.
  • Please save the logfile to your desktop and give it a recognizable name.
  • Do this for each log that has been requested.
  • When you are finished saving the necessary logs, close Event Viewer.
  • On your desktop find the saved log files. Hold the CTRL key and click to select each event log.
  • When all event logs are selected, right-click one of them, click Send to -> Compressed Zip Folder.
  • A new .ZIP file will have been created on your desktop. Please attach that file to this forum in your next reply.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

I opened event viewer, but don't know what events would be useful to look at. Under "Applications" there are mostly specific services, e.g. Symantec antivirus, Security Center, ccProxy, etc. There is nothing listed under Internet Explorer. I opened IE to see if I could generate an event, but nothing appeared.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,

While waiting, I kept checking for other similar posts and tried a few solutions. The one that worked was this:

In IE7, go to Tools>Internet Options - click 'Connections' tab. Click 'LAN Settings'. All three checkboxes in this dialog-box should be UNticked for the majority of home internet users. That was my problem anyway until I compared those settings on two computers (one with IE not working, the other okay). Soon as I discovered the different connection settings on each PC and made them both the same, bingo!

Thanks for helping and making Geeks possible,
