Cant connect to internet

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I cant connect to IE 7 or 8 or Firefox. I have ran a virus scan, malwarebytes and superantispyware and found nothing. When I do a diagnose connection problem First I get "Windows cannot troubleshoot your network connection because an error as occured." Please try again. When I click view last diagnostic log I get a lot of stuff but the only thing that is in red highlight is HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity. Then ...warn...HTTP Error 12029connecting to microsoft.com: A connection to the server could not be establesed with several other error messages that are simular except different sites. then at the end of that it says..."error...Could not make an HTTP connection"  etc.

 I have uninstalled IE8 with no luck running IE 7.

Any answer as to how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.
