Also, some antivirus suites or malware can do this. I don't see PC details so share what you can.
A SPECCY web report works too.
As the title says, I am getting the ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED error when trying to connect to reddit (and only reddit so far). I have looked around and I have tried several fixes but none seem to work.
I am on Windows 10, it does not work with Chrome, Opera or IE. My computer is connected to my router with an ethernet cable.
I can connect to reddit on my mobile phone via the wifi (same network).
I cannot connect to reddit when I boot in Ubuntu (I have a dual boot) and use firefox!
I can connect to reddit on windows when I use Tor instead.
I have tried the following:
netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset (did not fix it)
-Changing the DNS to 22.214.171.124 and alternate to 126.96.36.199 (did not fix it)
- Disabling windows firewall (did not fix it)
- I emptied C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (which was full of stuff, did not fix it)
Obviously plenty of restarts in all these steps.
If anyone has an idea I would love some help!
