I've a customer who is having difficulties with his Internet Explorer.
He can't access any web site from IE.  The only sites he is able to access are thoses who begin with HTTPS.

How can i correct this problem?
Notes:
This user have McAfee Security Center on his new Acer Laptop (i don't know if it might help you).  I deactivated the McAfee thing in the browser, but didn't changed anything.
 
I tried Google Chrome, and all the web sites are working just fine... so the problem is in IE, it's not a DNS problem.

In IE, click Tools from the menu bar->Internet Options->Advanced tab-> Under HTTP 1.1 Settings  item, clear those two check boxes.

Try this:

Open Internet Options, Connections tab, click "Lan Settings" button, deselect all.

I've told the customer both solutions.  He said that it worked, but didn't specified which one did the job really.

So i've no other choice to give you equals points (sorry for that).

Thanks a lot for your help
