http not working but https is
Posted on 2008-10-28
I have a XP Pro SP3 workstation that suddenly lost the ability to go to any http site. It will go to a https site. I have done extension virus checking, root kit checking, xp tcpip repair, winsock reset, dns flush, etc. This problem affects both IE7 and Firefox. There are no firewalls on the machine (firewall control is at the gateway, and no other users are having problems). AVG 8 is installed on the computer and it seems to have removed the ClearSearch malware a few days ago. I suspect that the registry is hosed BUT I can access any HTTP site in SAFE MODE. This effects all profiles on the machine.
