Solved: internet explorer won't connect
I am using Firefox browser right now with full internet access. But the IE won't connect to the internet. I have the same problem with Google Earth, which also stopped connecting. I paid for and downloaded PC Fix repair program. It did not repair the problem and I'm also unable to send them a report from inside their program because it says I have no internet connection, but obviously I do. Any ideas? Thanks....

I have done this many times. It has no effect. IE screen still says Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

then the "diagnose connection problems" result is Windows did not find any problems with this computers internet connections?

Uninstall Norton and McAfee and run the respective Removal Tools: Norton, McAfee. You can reinstall one of them after testing, so make sure you have your Product key.

Just for you Terrynet. Don't know if you're allowed to accept gifts, but I'm a music producer and have a new CD called "Banned in Jersey City" by Cool Specs. Go the website (theCoolSpecs.com) and click on the special offer, and I'll include additional CDs, T-shirts or sunglasses, whatever you may be interested in having. Thanks again.... Frank.....

It was helpful alright in showing us you had Norton, McAfee and AVG on the same computer.

Always make sure to uninstall all previous antivirus programs before installing new ones. Norton is notorious for connection issues when not properly uninstalled or when its subscription expires.

Thanks for the offer, but no, we do not accept gifts. Although I would have accepted promised chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cakes, and the like but the folks always reneged or required me to travel half way across the continent to pick them up.

Should mention that the site always accepts donations to keep it alive so that some of can spend gobs of time here.

And, finally, your thanks should go mostly to Phantom010. He's the one who did the real work here. I just had the pleasure of beating him to the punch this time (he was still reading while I was typing).

You can mark this solved using the button at the upper left of the page.

I don't mind if the CDs go to you TerryNet. I'll settle for a simple thank you note... written on the back of a twenty dollar bill...

Hey Phantom, not a bribe or payment. Go to theCoolSpecs.com, buy one CD and I'll send you whatever T-shirts or sunglasses you'd like as a bonus to your purchase. That way we all win! Thanks again. I knew Norton was the culprit for a month, but I just couldn't get around it. Thanks again. Frank.......

Can you post a few of your latest minidump files? They are located in C:\WINDOWS\Minidump. ZIP them and attach them to your next post.

Right-click the minidump file, select Send To, then select Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Windows will compress (zip) the file and save the new zipped file in the same location.

If you get an Access Denied error, disable the UAC.
