My desktop computer (xp) all of a sudden can't connect to the internet. In internet explorer(v6.0), under diagnostic test, it told me that I cant make a connection with HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP connection. I've done pings and it makes connections with other websites and such. I dont have any known firewalls up. What the hell is the problem!?!?

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Make and exact model and hardware version of any other network equipment, like a repeater, a booster, hi-gain antenna, etc.
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.




Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


  • If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
  • For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
  • Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
  • If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?




On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

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

Type the following commands on separate lines, following each one with the Enter key:

PING 206.190.60.37

PING yahoo.com

NBTSTAT -n

IPCONFIG /ALL


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

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.

This sounds like a firewall or Internet security application blocking the requests.

I dont have any firewall applications running that i know about. The windows one is disabled. I had norton 360, which i uninstalled, and there didnt change anything (and besides, i didnt use its firewall options when it was intalled).

Did you use the Norton removal tool? https://service1.symantec.com/Support...05033108162039

Boot into safe mode with networking and see if you have a connection.

I uninstalled Norton using the tool you linked to, it took it off, and now the internet works again! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! (I had also followed your suggestion to try the computer in safe mode with networking before uninstalling norton and it too connected to the web)

Now the question is: do i reinstall norton 360 for virus protection or should i get something else?


P.S. Do you have a guess what the specific problem may have been?

If it is 360 version 3 then you might want to keep it. If it isn't then i would find a replacement. Have a look here for the different programs out there.

Most uninstallations of Norton leave services behind and those are what block internet access. That is why Norton has its own tool for removing it.
