IE won't connect

  Mike 19:06 15 Feb 2008

On Wednesday night on shutdown there was some items to download from Automatic Updates. I left it to shut down.

Yesterday morning I could not get IE to display a page. "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage." I checked all the settings and all looked in order. I Opened Safari and it worked, I am posting from it now.

I read all I could find on other threads and Uninstalled IE7, on restarting I clicked on IE & IE6 came on did all I could to make it work but it didn't work.

I reinstalled IE7 along with all the updates, still no joy

Don't know what to do next.

I had the same problem Windows XP and found that the updates had changed my firewall (Commodo) settings and barred IE.

Went into firewall and allowed all the IE and now works fine.

Clue was that Firefox was still working so I knew Internet connection was OK
