View Full Version : browsers in vista wont load pages

i have a bit of a problem, it seemed to happen just after a reboot and update, but it wont load any web pages including resistorhelper (my home webserver) in ie and firefox however windows mail and messenger work fine as well as ping. hosts file looks clean with spybot's list redirecting gnarly sites to localhost, im VNC'ing into my TV computer just to post this:badpc:

Sounds like something is blocking it. i. ie: a proxy, firewall. or a program running in the background maybe. One of those antispyware programs. Since email, and MSN works. Altho if you were using a proxy, MSN probably wouldnt work. Could be the DNS server ips youre using

turns out trend micro's update botched up, fully exiting allowed pages to load
