Hi Experts... I have a tablet pc running XP. I had to run malwarebytes to remove multiple viruses. I was attempting to install a antivirus program when I discovered ie would not bring up a web page. I can connect to HTTPS sites but am unable to connect to HTTP sites. I disabled the firewall and looked at IE's properties (did not see anything). Further I uninstalled a norton program but have yet to reboot.

Any ideas what could be blocking the HTTP sites from this IE.... Thanks

Uninstalling Norton is often not enough.  You may have to download and run NRT, the Norton Removal tool.  http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web_view.jsp?wv_type=public_web&docurl=20080710133834EN&ln=en_US

Norton sometimes leaves their proxy still running after it is uninstalled which disables internet access.

In Internet Explorer:

1.  Goto Tools
2.  Internet Options
3.  Goto Connections Tab
4.  Click on LAN settings button
5.  Make sure the "Automatically Detect Settings" is checkmarked.

i would recommend installing Firefox and see if the same problem persists with the other browser.

if YES, that should be a system-level problem on XP, nothing to do with IE. we will move on to XP troubleshooting.

If NO, that should be an IE issue, and we will move on to IE troubleshooting.

do NOT install other browsers such as Chrome or Safari for test as they use some IE settings such as Proxy and Network.

hope it helps,
