Browser does not work, Internet connects fine
Hi again, this problem does not apply for me but for a friend, he asked me to post this here since he cannot use any of his browsers.
Recently my friend found out that his browsers does not load most websites. Sites they could load are Google, searches on Google, and TD Canada Trust. Sometimes he is able to load a web page but the images and advertisements would not come up. For Youtube the video loads fine, and fast, but the icons and the images do not. Online gaming and downloads are also in order, which indicates that the connection is stable.
This problem persists for both Internet Explorer and Firefox. He has tried turning off all his firewalls and anti virus programs (windows integrated and Trend micro), resetting internet explorer, reinstalling Firefox, clearing all data, virus scans. Even System Restore to a previous date. Basically all of the basic fixes we could think of, but the problem still exists.
Searching the forums and Googling this did not yield any results, for most of them are Norton-related problems.
Any contribution is appreciated, thank you in advance.
