    Firefox works as usual.
    Network Magic shows a good connection; the internet speed test gives normal readings.
    However, IE 7 will not connect. I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". Also, Microsoft Update cannot connect. I have tried the following:
    - rebooted many times
    - reinstalled IE 7
    - repaired & reset WinSock
    I don't really care about IE, but not being able to update Windows is a problem.
    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Windows XP Pro SP3

    Thanks. The culprit was McAfee. When I completely removed it, IE worked fine.
