Internet Explorer Doesn't Work Without Firewall

Sorry if this is confusing but I'm quite confused myself so here goes. My friend has Road Runner and it came with a security bundle called something like EZ Armor. I'm not sure if this will make a difference but ,one day, he upgraded the firmware on his router and that was the day that his Internet Explorer stopped working. Actually, Internet Explorer 7.0 didn't work but Firefox did so that's why I'm pretty sure it was a firewall problem. I think it's a random problem because I think his Internet Explorer 7.0 was working when I first started up his computer but then it just stopped working for no reason. I noticed that he didn't have his firewall running so when I ran it, IE7 worked. Why would this happen or am I just missing something? Thanks

I dont think that you are missing anything, how long has IE7 been running on this machine? Go to add remove programs and remove IE7, it is a quick uninstall. Reboot and then try it. IE7 is released but there are many bugs in it. I have found several:)

But are you sure it has nothing to do with the firewall that he has? I would think he should uninstall the firewall.

At first I thought no becasue the other browser worked, but since you mentioned it, I have seen where certain applications are blocked. GOOD POINT :)
