but I saw this article;
You have already tried some of the options noted, but perhaps one of the others will do the trick.
As to Firefox, maybe this is a simple Firewall problem. Check your ZoneAlarm Program Control settings and make sure Firefox is allowed.
I note you are using both ZoneAlarm and AVG free. AVG Free doesn't have a firewall I believe, but ZoneAlarm may have an anti-virus component. Make sure that is turned off.
Can anyone help? I keep getting the following error msg in the bottom left hand corner of IE8 internet page & I can't connect to the internet Tried Firefox but whatever web name I type into the URL, I get the message that this page doesn't exist.
On IE8 when I type the IP address of my router into the URL, it displays status of connected. When I check LAN settings, it is both transmitting & receiving packets.
Can't ping websites either.
Tried running every version of anti-malware/spyware/virus software I know of - nothing works. Tried disabling firewalls/phishing filters etc, but that didn't work either. Finally tried resetting IE & eventually reinstalled IE8 but still no joy.
Op Sys: Windows XP
Internet Browsers - IE8 & Mozilla Firefox
Anti-virus software etc, Malware Antibytes, AVG free, Zone Alarm
Any ideas much apreciated, thanks
