    Okay, I have a really big problem.
    For some reason, my applications cannot access the internet except Mozilla and 1 or two others. Not Chrome, IE, iTunes, etc. I don't know when this started, because I just now realized it, but Im assuming it has something to do with the network configuration or whatever -- but I looked at the configuration for my wireless network, and everything is in order. I don't know if its the main connection in Network Connections (the broadband one, or whatever) or what...
    Although, Im not really sure that anything in the network is effecting it..but assuming that I don't have any viruses that would be preventing internet access to most of my applications....
    SO if anyone could help me figure out whats going on, I would VERY much appreciate it...
    Additional Note: I have run McAfee, BitDefender, and ZoneAlarm, as well as Malawarebytes to remove anything effecting the system, and just upgraded and reinstalled iTunes, so none of those things were the cause. I also did that registry fix thing, I forgot what it was called, but it did nothing.

    Thanks,
    Austin Frye

    Hi Austin:
    So let's see this:
    It will give us the network as your pc see's it.
    The pings will tell us whether the dns function is working as it should.
    Any recent changes in hardware/software?
    Have you tried a system restore point at a date prior to the problem starting ?
    From a Johnwill post on the Networking Forum


    Try these simple tests.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

    NOTE: For the items below surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

    Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    PING <computer_IP_address>

    PING <default_gateway_address>

    PING <dns_servers>

    PING 74.125.45.100

    PING yahoo.com

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    <computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

    <default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    <dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    Okay, here are the results, although (xxxx) are the addresses correlating to your post. Hope you can figure this out, cuz I cant! And I don't know when the problem started, and I don't have any restore points anyway. :-\

    OK:So from the filtered info you gave me,you have a functioning wireless internet presence.
    All pings were successful.No packet loss.
    About the only thing I can suggest to you is:
    Disable all firewalls,default and any third party firewalls that you have running.Any change?
    Boot up in safe mode with networking.Any change ?
    Try pinging the sites you feel there is a problem with (itunes.com,etc
