Hi! I am using Win vista 32 bit on acer 5920g. I am unable to open any login web page (like gmail, fb) for past week but rest of the webpages are working fine. Tried on all browser- IE,chrome and mozilla.
Cleaned cookies (cookie enabled) and cache and no proxy is there.Internet security level is medium.
Checked for malware- none found. One thing is new my security essential DB won't get update. I tried with other anti virus programs and malwares.None threat found.
I had already done system restore and date stamp stuff.
I have tried on different networks too (using wi-fi), same trouble.

Whats am I missing?
error is always to look for lan setting.

Did you try another user account.

When I see this it's either Norton/Kapersky that expired or a failed user account.

Try making a new user account and test there.

Sounds Like A Popup Blocker...Or....
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / May 1, 2013 4:30 AM PDT

If you have a popup blocker installed, or enabled on your browsers, such can prevent the login box from loading.. Try disabling the blocker.

Or, in some cases, the login boxes use Java to load.. If you've recently uninstalled Java, try reinstalling it.

Hope this helps.
