Hi all,

Have been given a spare laptop which has not been used for a while and is running XP.

After using it for a short time no longer able to open any web page.

Page opens Internet Explorer Cannot Display Page,

After running diagnose tools---

Windows cannot connect to internet using HTTP HTTPS FTP

Check firewall settings HTTP port 80, HTTPS port 443 and FTP port 21

Windows firewall is switched on.

Can update windows etc but just cant open any webpage.

Hope someone can help.

If you can download and use Firefox temporary till you get it fixed.
click here

Or maybe try Internet options in control panel.Advanced,And press reset that resets internet explorer to its original state.
While ther go into programs and make sure internet Explorer is set to default.
Update and run the free version of Malwarebytes to see if it finds any problems.
