I am having problems with my IE and when I try to use it, I receive this message: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".
When I diagnosed the connection problem and I am told "Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, HTTPS, FTP. Check the firewall settings for the HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)."
Now, I know there are similar or even exact same problems to this but I tried every single resolution. None worked! I only have one firewall, I have used wireless and ethernet cables, I have used safe mode with networking, I have my LAN settings set to automatically detect, same with my IP and DNS and several other solutions.
It seems I can use MSN messenger perfectly fine, but still no response from Internet Explorer.
I have contacted my ISP, but they could not fix my problem.
Can anyone help?
System Configuration: Windows Vista Internet Explorer 8.0
I had the same problem. I was connected but oddly could not go to many sites, mostly secure ones. Problem persisted in both IE and Firefox.
I finally recalled when the problem arouse. Right after I installed Norton.
You cannot remove Norton through traditional ways of uninstalling. Open your Norton Internet Security. On the bottom left panel you see the user accounts, click on it, enter login as Supervisor, and if you have never logged in, leave the password area blank, and hit enter. Then go to your control panel and Add/Remove programs.
Choose Norton Security and "Change" option. You will see 3 choices. Choose, Remove Norton.
Once its done, restart your system, and see if you have any other Norton or Sympatico programs. Uninstall them through the tradditional way. Restart again and Vioala! You are back in the game with no problems.
