Hi. I have a laptop with Internet Explorer 7. About a week ago, IE7 stopped connecting to web pages. I tried installing Opera and testing it, but the same thing happened. However, I have no problem connecting to the Internet via Tweetdeck. I thought the problem could be my router, but I went to an Internet cafe and the same thing happened. Any ideas? I am truly stumped. TIA

Check your proxy settings and BHO Jun 23, 2009

Malware (and even legitimate software) can modify your network settings without asking you.

Try to check the following: Tools > Internet options > Connections > LAN Settings and Tools > Internet options > Programs > Manage addons.

If you see something suspicious, delete it. If this doesn't help, try reverting to default settings: Tools > Internet options > Advanced > Reset.

System Restore Jun 23, 2009

Hi,

If you have System Restore activated, you can try the System Restore tool and return your computer to a previous state. In many cases it is possible to solve these kind of problems with this tool.

Here are the instructions to restore the system: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084

Hope it helps.
