IE7 Address not valid http:///
I have a client with a Dell Vostro Desktop 200 running Windows XP SP3 on Workgroup. When I open IE7 on the computer, it tries to go to the homepage of www.google.com but I get "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". If I type in www.yahoo.com in the address bar it gives me "The address is not valid" with "http:///" in the address bar. I installed Firefox and it works fine. The CA Etrust Antivirus also will not perform updates. It states that it cannot find an internet connection.

I found the problem:

I went to Tools->Internet Options->Connections>Click on LAN SETTINGS->Uncheck where it says use a proxy server for a LAN...-> Then check where it says automatically detect settings.

I don't know what changed these settings but it has fixed my issue with IE7 and the CA updates.
