    I have a HP and Windows 7 Pro. Five days ago I got an error on google chrome saying Error 10 (net::ERR_ACCESS_DENIED). I thought that it would go back to normal the next day so I just used IE (which I don't really like cause it always crashes). The next day Chrome still didn't work, so I decided to see if Firefox or Opera worked and of course they didn't. I have been looking in forums for 3 days and I have tried almost everything. I know that it's not a virus, firewall isn't blocking any of them, and the proxy is also not the problem. I have also done a system recovery to the day before Chrome stopped working and it still won't work. HELP!!

    Why don't try removing the programs, then reinstalling them? If you haven't already...

    How have you confirmed it's not an infection of any kind? What security software do you use? Are you using the Windows firewall or a third party firewall?

    Peace...

    Have you tried rebooting the router?

    Uninstalling the browser won't eradicate any kind of infection. So, how have you determined that your system isn't infected and which security software are you running?

    EDIT: Also, does IE work at all? Or do NONE of the browsers work right now?

    Peace...

    I have rebooted the router, and I used to use Norton but i deleted it off so i use a free one and IE is the only browser that will work. It just keeps freezing up.

    Thanks for the update. Have you run a Norton removal tool. If you were using the Norton firewall before, there might be remnants of it causing grief.

    Try running the Norton Removal tool and see what happens. Also, boot the computer in safe mode with networking and see if any/all of the browsers can access the web.

    Peace...

    Thanks for the update. This means something running when you boot normally is blocking the other browsers. See if the Norton Removal tool does the trick or not.

    When you had Norton installed, were you using its firewall?

    Peace...

    I don't understand the question. What is "it" in the context of your question? :)

    Peace...
