Internet Explorer will not connect to HTTP, but will connect to HTTPS

Q: Internet Explorer will not connect to HTTP, but will connect to HTTPS

My browser is IE8. Window XP Home with SP2 (Sony VAIO Desktop PCV-RS420, Pentium-4, 2.8 Ghz, 512MB Ram). I am now unable to connect to the Internet. The network diagnostic for window XP kept saying to check firewall settings for HTTP(port 80), HTTPS(port 443), and FTP (port 21).  I don't know how to do that. I open the Window firewall settings on the Security Center page (Exception tab), it lists programs and services on the "Exception", ie, to not block incoming network connection from these programs or services, which include "Internet Explorer",on the list, which seems to be appropriate.  But my computer still will not connect to the Internet--very frustrating.  I  have done "System Restore" a few times to an earlier dates, thinking maybe the computer picked up some virus and the System restore function should temporarily resolve that issue.  But still no luck.   Finally, I tried connecting to a secured website with "HTTPS" in the address bar and the computer appeared to be successful to connect to these HTTPS sites, but it continued to refuse to connect to a regular website(i.e. with "HTTP" in its address bar).  Please help me resove these internet connection issues I would vey much appreciate.

Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer will not connect to HTTP, but will connect to HTTPS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Internet Explorer will not connect to HTTP, but will connect to HTTPS

<<My browser is IE8. Window XP Home with SP2...>>
May have nothing to do with your problem...but you really need to install SP3 and all critical updates since its issuance...that may take care of your problem, but even if it doesn't...your system will be less vulnerable.
Installing or reinstalling SP3... has been known to overcome various previous system problems.
Sounds to me like corruption affecting non-secure websites, so you may also want to reinstall IE8.

I have gone thru all of the internet firewalls, ISP provided could not figure it out, All software come up negative. I have been told that there is malware that hijacked the settings and thismight be the reason why I can not connect. I have no idea what to look for in this situation.

I have Windows XP Home Edition and have just successfully reinstalled Service Pack 3. I have a wireless connection which is OK.
When i try and go on internet the message
"Windows cannot connect to the Internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FPT. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer.It also says "Check the firewall settings for the HTTP Port 80
HTTPS Port 443
FPT Port 21
I found where the HTTP and HTTPS are located and added Ports as directed but still cannot connect to Internet. Also where will i be able to find FPT.
Would Norton Security settings have any effect on the firewall. My Windows firewall settings page is complicated to say the least and i just wish it was a simpler task.
Any advice on how to fix my firewall problems would be appreciated.

One computer on network cannot connect to Internet
I've run into a bit of a strange circumstance here, where one of the computers connected through the router suddenly cannot connect to the Internet. No one had touched the computer.

This computer's running Windows XP and uses cable Internet through a router that two other computers are hooked up to. Every setting I checked was telling me that the computer was connected to a working internet connection, but no program is able to access it.

Help this is driving me crazy. Spent 2 hours chatting with some guy from Linksys.

Hi there,
I'm hoping someone can help me out with this because I have tried everything I can think of with no luck.

My brother had just moved in and tried to install a wireless router and apparently everything was running fine for about 5 minutes and then the connections went weird:

When trying to connect to some websites an error message appears (can not display page) when diagnostics are run it says the connection to http and https is running fine, but it is unable to connect to ftp sites. Could be a problem with firewall settings.

I get the same message when trying to connect to windows live messanger and running the troubleshoot. FTP connection problem, check the firewall.

I had zone alarm installed, turned it off, and checked the sites, still no connection. So I turned it back on, changed a few program settings (to ensure it was allowing messanger.exe and explorer.exe) still didn't work. Uninstalled zone alarm, turned on the windows firewall and that's where it is now.

My brother called into my service provider, they got him to run a bunch of spyware/antivirus diagnostics, nothing came up (as it shouldn't I have PC Tools anti virus and spyware running) and then told him it seemed as though the connection was fine but a program on the computer was blocking some specific sites. So obviously no help there.

Anyone have any idea what could be the problem? I can't access my mail in outlook (pop3 server can't connect) and pretty much any website. google.com works, faceboo... Read more

I am running Windows XP Pro on a desktop system. The problem I am having is that I can not connect to the Internet. I ran Microsoft's connection trouble shooter and it returned with this message: Can not connect through HTTP port 80, HTTPS port 443 or FTP port 21. I can see the lights on the back of my computer were I plug the network cable into, it looks normal. I have tried different cables, different ports on my router. My router works fine in the wireless mode, and with other computers hooked up via a cable. I am assuming that my router is OK. I have Microsoft's firewall turned off and I have set my Webroot security firewall sset to allow all traffic. Not sure what to try next. I truely appreciate any and all suggestions.

Restoring to the state before the updates did not help nor did turning the system off and restarting

This issue arises randomly and only once has it ever recovered. Event viewer also does not show anything either. Restarting fixes this issue, but I would rather find out what caused this issue in the first place.

I cannot connect to any sites using HTTP or HTTPS but I can connect to my remote FTP server and PING works for any website. I have used 'netsh' in an attempt to fix my issues but it requires a restart where it would fix it temporarily.

I also cannot access any local IPs or my localhost web server. I can however access some of Google's websites on Google Chrome Dev but not on any other browser. For the other sites I get a TIMED_OUT error. I have reinstalled my network drivers and reset my network settings (including DNS) but nothing else works.

I even turned off Bitdefender Firewall and Antivirus and Malwarebytes and issued a system scan but does not impact anything.

I have recently installed zonealarm,hoping it might fix the problm,but it has not.I cant even conect BitComet,or Skype,yet i have no problem accessing my e-mails from incredimail.
Also,for some reason when i am in explorer,and accessing websites,i cant open anything in a new tab,it just opens a blank page,and my Dial-up Connection box keeps flashing on and of the screen until the site is loaded.

Ive tried playing around with my network settings,but i only have the 1 pc,and i have a D-Link DSL-200 ADSL Modem attached,but no other computers.

Ive tried turning the XP Firewall off,but stil have same problems.
As you can probably understand,I am at my wits end.

Okay, I'm going crazy over this little problem. A friend/neighbors computers Internet Explorer 7 (now 6) or Firefox 3.0.6 will guit working after about 5 minutes and then will only go to websites that have the S (secure websites) in HTTPS websites, e.g. https://www.aaanetaccess.com...or anything like that. It will quit receiving bytes, but I can Ping www.yahoo.com or www.google.com.

The computer has Windows XP Pro, AMD XP CPU, 512 MB RAM, etc... and it runs great except for this.

I've uninstalled AVAST and Adaware since they had been installed about a week before this occurred, but everything was working fine for that week.

Also uninstalled XP SP3
Let me know if you need more info.

Please help before I lose it!


A:Solved: Internet browsers will only connect to HTTPS websites

Well, I restored the computer back to the day before I had updated Avast (Jan. 15th) and found a mess of problems that I wasn't aware of at the time. Firefox had to be reinstalled. Internet Options wouldn't open and ie7 was working in No-Add-ons mode. I reinstalled ie7 and those apps started working.

And, the internet is now working fine.

Using Windows Vista Home Premium Edition, Sevice Pack 2

For about three days now, I haven't been able to access the internet except through Internet Explore 64bit. When I try to connect with Firefox, whatever website I attempt to load comes up as "The connection was reset". When I try to connect with Internet Explore (32bit), I get the message: "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". Also uTorrent cannot connect. I tried logging onto Firefox and IE from other computers in my house and had no problem. I also tried my computer on a different network and had the same problems.

I first noticed the problem when I upgraded to the latest edition of uTorrent. I checked for any updates with Windows, ran scans using AVG and Spyware Doctor, uninstalled uTorrent, tried uninstalling and re-installing Firefox, ran Firefox in safe mode, turned off Windows Firewall, and disabled AVG. I haven't had any luck yet. Where should I go from here?

I have a broadly similar problem and wonder if posting to this thread might help others.

Two laptops. Both on WiFi connections to the same router.
One laptop (an Acer) works without problems in all elements described below.
Problem laptop (a Dell Mini 9) upon reboot has 5-10 mins before internet access is not available - by which I mean to http pages in IE7. Even if I do not use IE to access the internet after 5-10 mins this is not possible. Message received is the standard 'page cannot be displayed). WiFi signal is strong, and IE access to all sites fine from the working laptop (upon which I am typing this)
Problem laptop *can* access https pages
Problem laptop can ping all websites (http and https)
Problem laptop - have tried netsh commands listed below. Also general check on registry/malware/zonealarm etc. None present (or at least obvious).
Problem laptop has AVG 8.0 free plus Windows Firewall. The latter two can be disabled but make no difference to access
Problem laptop can be rebooted and access is fine, but only for 5-10 mins.

Any thoughts?

I have an Adobe Connect meeting scheduled for tomorrow, and when I click on the link to test my connection to Adobe Connect, which I just installed, I get this message- what can I do? I am connected to the Internet, so Firefox does have permission to access
the Web.
"Hmm. We?re having trouble finding that site.

We can?t connect to the server at meet94924985.adobeconnect.com.
If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

    Try again later.
    Check your network connection.
    If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

I just bought this laptop about 10 days ago to use specifically for a writing project separate from my other work laptop. It has Windows 7. It had Google Chrome installed (or maybe my brother installed it upon taking it out of the box.) I have
used IE as my browser on this laptop once or twice, but mostly use Google Chrome. I downloaded some genealogy software I just bought today about an hour or so ago (Family Tree Maker 2012) and noticed that it would not connect to the internet to register- it
kept saying "No internet connection". After trying a few things (allowing the program access through Windows Firewall, checking to make sure that "proxy server" tab was not checked in Internet Settings, disabling some Bing Maps and Windows
Live email accelerators) and finally tried closing Chrome and opening IE to run in background instead. However, IE won't connect - keeps saying "Cant display webpage" although I am definitely connected to internet via wifi. I tried resetting Internet
Explorer...no dice. I've restarted several times. Nothing is working. Any suggestions?
My husband thinks i should uninstall Chrome, which he guesses is causing all the trouble with both IE and the Family Tree software. But I'm afraid that if I uninstall Chrome and it doesnt work, i wont be able to get back on the internet since I can presently
only do so through Chrome.
I dont have a whole lot of experience troubleshooting computers, so please be spec... Read more

A:IE won't connect to internet, but Chrome is working fine. Other software wont connect to internet either.

Uninstalling Chrome should not be nessesary it does have an agressive default install which should not be used but uninstalling will not fix any issues because chromes uninstall will not change
setting back the way they were before you installed it/ or who ever.
Reset ie9 manually,
Click the Start button on the Taskbar,
Click on Control panel,
Click on Internet options,
Go to the Advanced section,
Click on Reset button on the bottom,
Check the box to Delete personal settings,
Use the recommended setup and install options.
Also see this,
New computers come with pre-installed security suites/ Trial versions,
The best thing to do with these trial versions is to Uninstall them,
Use these instead,
Freebie from microsoft,
If money isn't an issue add the full pro version of malwarebytes, less than mcafee or norton,

Then use the free version of this as well for even more ways to clean your machine,

Running XP Home Edition, SP3, IE8.
I did a free trial of Zone Alarm Internet Security for 30 days, and the day after I paid and signed up for the full Internet Security version, my system was attacked. Somehow the “Antispyware Plus” malware was downloaded to my PC (could have been through kids clicking “Allow” on ZA warning) and the system went nuts. It looks like ZA was shutdown somehow (although only my wife and I knew the password for ZA) because I had 15-20 of the Windows little red shields with an “X” (system unprotected warning) in the bottom right had corner of my desktop when I found it.
I ran ZA and I think it found a couple of things. I did not record the details. I also ran Malwarebytes and it found a few things. I quarantined them. I also ran a tool called SUPERantispyware and it found several things (screen shot attached). Still no access to the internet. I tried to shutting down ZA thinking it had looked my internet protocols in the attack and rebooted, no joy. Uninstalled ZA (via control panel remove) and rebooted, still no joy. Contacted ZA and they said to run ZA (which I already uninstalled and can’t reload die to no internet. Also said to run Malwarebytes and Superantispyware. Recommended to run a DRWebliveCD program, but it looks potentially dangerous for my data, so I thought I would try you guys first.

I have tried the fix for TCP/Winsock, I have rechecked my security settings, cleared all cookies, cashes deleted temp internet files, verified date and time settings, verified encryption, used the system file checker, verified the cryptologic settings, re-registered dll files, run hijack this and pc tools.

A:Cannot Connect To Https On Either Ff Or Ie

angelclmbr:HTTPS uses TCP port 443 to communicate.Perhaps, by mistake you set ZoneAlarm to block communication with HTTPS on port #443. *Standard HTTP uses TCP port 80 to communicate.I am not a ZoneAlarm user, but this link to their discussion group has a proposed solution to this problem.Right HereLet us know if that worked.

I am using XP Pro SP2 and my IE 6 will not connect to the internet. Also Outlook Express will not connect. I can connect to the Internet with FireFox but not with IE.
This started a couple of weeks ago. I was able to find an old restore point and get it going again. Then the next morning, it would no longer work. Now, even a restore point will not fix it.
A couple of days ago I upgraded to SP2 thinking it might fix IE. No luck. Everything works fine except IE 6 and Outlook Express.
Sure would appreciate some help on this one.

My current issue is that IE7 cannot connect to the internet. Now before you go posting to tell me to get Firefox, thats what I use already as my browser. However, i must have IE7 able to connect to the internet because many programs rely on it. My current issue is that IE7 wont connect to any website, but all of my other programs work fine. I can browse the web with Firefox and all my other programs have no connectivity issues. The first thing I did was ask Microsoft for help, but all I got was to look on their website or pay us 60 bucks to talk on the phone. After browsing their site for solutions and attempting them all I still have no IE7 connection to the net. I will post any information possibly relevant here and just ask if you need more. I understand that you are taking time out of you day to help people and I thank you for that.

A:Can not connect to web using Internet Explorer

You need a separate thread for this katy, so please follow-up here.

Whatever Rolling-High.com is the "account is in suspension".

It rather sounds like your Internet Explorer Home Page has been altered. Try changing it to something else, such as www.yahoo.com and see if the change holds up and you can access the site.

You can change your Homepage through Tools>Internet Options.

Hey guys, my computer can navigate the internet just fine with Firefox, but when I try to use Internet Explorer, the browser comes up and it just says "connecting" on the tab. Nothing ever happens and none of the buttons on the browser work. I have to go to the task manager to close it out and of course it tells me it's not responding. I have the latest version of it. I am running Windows XP Home. I've run two different virus scans and it never fixes anything, but most of the scanners require that I use Internet Explorer to use them. Any ideas?

A:Can't connect to Internet Explorer

I found a fix for my problem!!! Network Adapters disappeared after major spyware invasion. I found that my registry had been modified. The registry key affected was: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\CLASS\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} I went to run, regedit and followed this path and I thought it would be missing completely but it wasn't. It was there but it had problems. To fix it go to: http://www.trilaworks.com/tools/networkadaptersfix.zip
In my case I didn't have an Internet connection, so I used my son's computer to save the zip file to a floppy disk. I then inserted the floppy disk into my computer and extracted the file to My Documents. Then open the file and it asks you if you want to send the information in this file to your registry. Yes. But before you download always be prepared. Have your registry and critical files backed up or have a restore disk just in case. Trojans and Worms can be in files that you download. It took about 3 seconds to download. I then went into device manager and updated the drivers for my VIA Rhine II NetAdapter and the 1394 Firewire devices that had the Yellow exclamation mark. I rebooted and the Network adapters were all showing up. I went to Internet Explorer and still could not find server. I went back into Device Manager and deleted the network adapters and rebooted. After reboot I could access Internet. What a relief!! Hope this helps anyone having the same problem. I spent a lot of tim... Read more

I have a PC that won't let IE6 connect to the internet. I have a Comcast Cable Broadband connection and my OS is XP Home. My yahoo and AOL IM work fine. When I start IE it trys to connect to my homepage (or others i have typed in) and I keep getting the error message "The page could not be displayed", The page you are looking for might have been removed or had its name changed.


Please try the following:

Open the home page, and then look for links to the information you want.

If you typed the page address in the Address bar, make sure that it is spelled correctly.

If you still cannot open the page, click the Internet Explorer
Search button to look for similar sites.
I can connect to any websites on my other PC. I have used the Add/Remove Programs to uninstall any software that I dont use anymore. Also, I have run Adaware and Spybot and deleted the entries that I did not recognize (spyware?). Any ideas on how to get IE back up and running? Thanks!

A:Internet Explorer won't connect

Hi teejayh...first off, use IE Tool/Internet options and click Delete Cookies, Delete Files and Clear History, clicking OK each time.

Then go Tools/Internet options...Programs tab...click Reset web settings.

Close IE, restart and see if things improve.

If not, download, install and run HiJackThis (it's free). Select 'do a system scan and save the log file' - DON'T let it 'fix' anything as most of the entries are meant to be there.

Copy and paste the complete log into another post in this thread and someone will look at it and advise you further.

For the past month i've been having a problem with IE6 on my laptop. It absolutely refuses to connect. With Firefox everything is OK. I've tried everything i could think of with no success. I ran Microsoft Malicious software removal tool and found nothing. I ran four antispyware programs with the same result. I ran my antivirus program and again nothing. I removed IE6 and then re-installed it and again no change. I removed IE6 again and installed IE7 and again the same thing. I removed IE7 and re-installed IE6 and ran Fix Winsock which did nothing. I ran the system file checker and there too, nothing was found. On the internet options connections tab , the setting for connection is automatically detect settings. I checked with my desktop machine and i have the same settings and i'm having no problem with IE6 on that machine. I did a repair install of XP and installed SP2 and all the Autopatcher versions that were there before. Again , that did nothing. I also tried with caution a couple of registry fixing programs and again no change. I ran HijackThis , and include the log result for it. I'm running out of ideas to fix this problem. Why do i need IE6 if Firefox is working you may ask? It seems that you can connect your XBox 360 with your computer and play media from it. You have to use the software for Microsoft Zune player to do it. During the install of the program , it wants to check for updates and like IE6 it cannot connect , so the install st... Read more
