You can try this....WinsockFix to restore internet connectivity.

http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html

The Winsockfix Utility will:
· Detect your current Operating System
· Release the IP address, taking you "Offline"
· Reset the TCP stack using Netsh.exe (Windows XP only)
· Delete the current Registry TCP and Winsock Values
· Import new "Working" Registry Values
· Backup any Current "Hosts" file
· Replace the "Hosts" file with a default one
· Reboot the Computer

Have you tried different versions of Internet Explorer? Have you gone to the Windows Update Website and make sure that you have all of the security patches for IE? Have you tried to clear your cache in IE? If you open IE, click Tools, Internet Options, Click on the Advance Tab, and Reset Internet Explorer back to its defaults?

Try uninstalling IE from Control Panel and reinstalling it again.

Did you at least try the Winsockfix tool? Also, what are you running for security software? Did you try disabling your AV and Firewall to see if that helps?

It had to do with my AV. Once I re installed the AV IE worked. Thanks!
