Which firewall are you using - XP or a a third party one such as ZoneAlarm?

kenny1888 have you configured your firewall to let a port allow iexplore.exe make a connection?

Just check,to see if you are running two firewalls, like XP and ZA together. If so, disable one, prefarably the XP firewall, and only run one firewall.

"its a third party firewall"

The reason for asking was that, if you tell us which firewall you are using, someone using the same firewall could advise you on the settings you need to change to allow IE internet access.

Kenny1888, if you reply on the page it keeps all those reading the thread up to date and allows them to offer further suggestions.
