I have vista quad core, 2 gig ram, new pc.

I know the internet works because i can go on msn and yahoo and install windows update.

But none of my internet browsers work.
I have got firefox and internet explorer.

Internet explorer stoped working first , so i started using firefox (both were already pre installed), and now a few months later firefox has stopped working.

So.. how do i fix these??

thanks

I would go to "add and remove programs" thingy and re-install internet explorer. uninstall, then there should be the Setup thing fo it there.

Let me know if this works

More like a Winsock problem

1. Click Start. In the Start Search dialog box, type: cmd, and right-click cmd.
2. Click Run as administrator.
3. Type: netsh winsock reset, and then press the ENTER key.
4. Type: Exit and press ENTER.
5. Restart the computer

Try Control Panel.Internet options.Advanced.And press reset.You will loose your add ons but you can restore them later.

Any luck yet.or still the same.I suppose it could be your Firewall stopping them.What Firewall do you use.
