What's wrong?

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Internet

I just noticed this a few days back, and I didn't really pay attention since I don't use IE. I tried opening up Windows Live Messenger, but it couldn't connect. My internet was fine, I was browsing with Firefox all the time. But when I clicked a link on the error message, it opened up IE and for some reason I couldn't connect anywhere with Internet Explorer. Firefox was 100% fine and I could browse where I wanted, but in IE nothing was responding. This also apparently causes my Messenger to get all gay as well. Any help?

    Kinda hard to Google anything since I don't know what's the problem. It doesn't show that I'd have any connections in the IE internet options, and when I click Setup it just closes the goddamn menu without doing anything. When I test some TCP connection (seriously what the fuck's that) in Messenger it says that my connection is fine, but when logging in it says that I can't connect. That gay ass Network Diagnostics bleh bleh thingie which sucks penis does nothing either, it just checks the connection in like two seconds (without even getting a connection) and right after that says "Consult your computer manufacturer's troubleshooting information. You can also use another computer to visit online support services. Contact your computer manufacturer for additional assistance if required.". This is just bullshit :/

    Proxy and firewall problem? DNS cache? didnt pay bill? registry failure? bug? virus? antivirus or firewall? connection? they must be one of these list.

    No. My computer internet works fine with everything except for IE and programs related to it (Windows Live Messenger, Windows Messenger, Steam Community (inside Steam), server MOTD's).

    Check your trusted applications in your firewall. That should be your first step IMO.

    Checked my firewall & antivirus, it's neither. IE & Messenger both worked two days ago. Trying to install an older version of Messenger, that's my main problem really

    installing new version to old version may cause registry to conflict and cause IE failure (since MSN connect using IE).. use system restore point.

    Install the newest versions of messenger and internet exlporer and it'll probably be fine. Even if you have them, re-install them.

    I'm re-installing both IE and Messenger as soon as possible, can't now. My firewall isn't blocking the programs, all the programs it blocks are.. dwwin.exe and rundll32.exe D:

    Your IE is suffering from neglect, it will refuse to work for you until you un-install that attention whore FireFox and have sex with IE, it will not work for a cheating bastard. (this is of course a joke and in no way should it be taken seriously)

    I had an issue with MSN Messenger, so I installed a new version and that worked. What is your firewall that´s blocking it?

    It works on every other account except for mine. I checked if there would be any differences with the settings, but no. Also I would try messing with my Internet connection, but if I turn off my router and switch it back on, I lose connection and it takes hours for me to get it back up :s When I try to find out what the problem is and run that test thingie on Messenger, it says that it cannot connect to the proxy server. EDIT: Works now, I checked my LAN settings and unchecked the box to use a network proxy.
