      IE cannot display webpage

      Hi all,
      My main PC is wired to the modem and my daughters laptop connects wirelessly, bot of us have never had any problems. A few days ago I connected a new laptop to it, its seemed successfully. I'm connected to the internet as I can kick off msn, limewire etc, bu IE (and FireFox) will not display any pages?
      I've disabled AVG on the laptop and there is no firewall.
      Does anyone have any ideas, its driving me nuts mad:
      Ta

      you could try opening up your internet explorer options>advanced tab and then reset internet explorer to original state. also try and disable the windows firewall(control panel) if you havent already done so. i would also try manually settings your ip + dns settings in your wireless network connection properties and running a speed test through the laptop. it is strange it can connect to msn + limewire but not ie or firefox, let me know if you have any problems trying any of these steps or if your able to resolve the issue.

      Sounds like port 80 may be blocked (which would be usually caused by a Firewall).

      Thanks for the reply.
      Just tried it in Safe Mode with networking and was able to browse with no problems. Just did your reset suggestion but it still doesn't work
      Any other thoughts, (I am able to ping google successfully)

      There was a virus on the laptop, so I tidied it up a bit (not my laptop!!!!). I've ran full avg and malaware scans and am confident its not a virus, so I don't really want to do a restore.

      Re: IE cannot display webpage

      Just a quick update for anyone else who may the same problem. After running in safe mode with networking I wss able to access IE and FireFox with no problems so I knew it must be a service conflict. So I just looked at what I'd installed, AVG as a replacement to Nortons (as it had expired), so I uninstalled a now redundant Nortons and this has fixed the problem.
      Thanks for the replys
