    All 3 of them are not working for me. I'm using another computer just to type this.
    The HTTP, HTTPS, FTP diagnostic reads:

    warn HTTP: Error 12029 connecting to www.microsoft.com: A connection with the server could not be established

    warn HTTP: Error 12029 connecting to www.hotmail.com: A connection with the server could not be established

    warn FTP (Passive): Error 12029 connecting to ftp.microsoft.com: A connection with the server could not be established

    warn HTTPS: Error 12029 connecting to www.microsoft.com: A connection with the server could not be established

    warn HTTPS: Error 12029 connecting to www.passport.net: A connection with the server could not be established

    warn FTP (Active): Error 12029 connecting to ftp.microsoft.com: A connection with the server could not be established

    error Could not make an HTTP connection.

    error Could not make an HTTPS connection.

    error Could not make an FTP connection.


    There are a few more diagnostics left, but hopefully this is the important part of it all.

    Please help me if possible.

    Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan settings > Proxy server > Advanced > delete proxy server settings > click OK > uncheck all boxes > click OK.

    In Firefox, click Tools > Options... > Advanced > Network > Settings > delete proxy settings > select No proxy > click OK.

    The computer doesn't have Firefox, only Internet Explorer. Remember that I have other stuff from the error not shown. If you need me to show it, just tell me so.

    So you did check your Internet Explorer proxy settings, right?
