No Internet Access Win7 Starter Edition

I have a Windows 7 Starter based Netbook that shows Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage for any website. It does, however work in Safe Mode.

I have reset IE, run anti virus (Norton, Avast, etc.) and adware (Spybot, Malwarebytes, etc.) software to no avail.

Thank you for your help.

If you had a virus some of them change the Proxy setting in IE.  Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings> ensure Only "Automaticlly detect Settings" is checked.


If not download firefox and install.  If you dont have a flash drive to transfer over here is how to downlad it via FTP on the device (only if IE is the broken item)

You can also go to tools> Internet Options> Advanced> and click the reset button. The Proxy settings would be the first place I would look also.  Download MalwareBytes and run it in safemode and that should clean up most anything that you may have contracted.

I have already performed reset of IE settings and run Malwarebytes in safemode (nothing found) to no avail. When I select Diagnose Connection Problems, the result is 'Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem.'

can you download firefox in safe mode, install it and see if that works? I am pretty sure it has to do with the proxy settings in IE. This could also be the result of a 3rd party firewall or possibly your virus protection. These things would not run in safe mode.

The FTP procedure to download from Mozilla did not work, so I downloaded it to a thumb drive using another computer. I loaded and ran Firefox on the HP Mini with the result of 'Unable to connect' with all attempts to go to websites.

Did you disable your Symantec Software? : "Symantec Intrusion Prevention  can cause a lock so you are unable to get to the web", uninstall spybot, pybot-S&D IE Protection for now. Then I would uninstall all the tool bars for IE.. MSN, Norton, 4shared.com Toolbar, " I bet it has something to do with this last toolbar.
Reset IE again, check the Proxy setting and make sure it is set to "Automatically detect setting" save and re-boot your machine.
I am assuming you have made sure Router, network card are all in working order and nothing is disabled

The problem turned out to be Norton. When I uninstalled it. I immediately was able to access the internet. Thank you for helping me solve a problem that has troubled me for weeks.

No Problem,
Glad to be of service, I would look at using something like Avast or Windows Live One Care, neither of these lock down your internet without you knowing. I just think Norton has way too many things going on that unless you are an advanced user you usually end up getting stumped like this.
