Windows 7 Can not connect to Microsoft Website
Posted on 2013-01-05
I have a windows 7 workstation on our domain, that had to have windows 7 pro reinstalled. Can connect to the domain and to several sites on the internet, but can not connect to microsoft to do windows updates. I notice that the machine connects to the website with internet explorer 8, but can not receive a reply from the websites.
Can access google and some of the links.
Tried disabling windows firewall, but still unable to connect to many websites. No antivirus programs installed yet either. Drive was reformatted and windows 7 was installed clean.
Not sure what might be causing this. DNS and DHCP looks fine. All other stations on network connect fine and this machine connects to the network and shares fine.
