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.)


Pre-requisites already in place:
I have configured TLS 1.2
I have disabled many of the RC4 and other default ciphers as well as disabled SSL 2.0, 3.0, and TLS 1.0/1.1
I have set up the Registry Key for Strong Cryptography as well (SchUseStrongCrypto)

When I try to run any thing, from powershell that requires connect-msolservice... I get pop-up window for authentication except the pop-up window gives me weird script error
What do I need to configure to fix this?

I have tried some of the steps here:

I can remotely connect to my private network through my Nortel VPN client. I am given an IP address for that private network. However, I cannot ping the DNS or WINS servers or any of my 5 servers.

My system running the Nortel VPN client is a Windows Server 2003 SP3 server.

A:Can connect to private network but cannot connect to servers on it

I am still unable to connect to any of the servers on my private network after I VPN to that private network. I guess because I didn't make an actual question statement, no one replied to my post.

Does anyone have any ideas on why I cannot connect to the remote servers on a private network when I use Nortel VPN client on my Windows Server 2003 computer? I can connect to the private network. I am given a private network IP address and 2 DNS IP addresses and 2 WINS IP addresses. However, I cannot ping any of these servers or any of my application servers on that private network.

I'm at a loss at what might be going on.

Any suggestions are greatly appeciated.

Like the title says, I can't connect to anything server-related. My internet works fine as I am here typing this.. I noticed the problem started on Battle.net. I finished a custom game and went to join another but no matter what, they would tell me the game was closed or full. but I could refresh and see new games being created. Then if I exit battle.net and try to reconnect, it won't let me even connect and says my internet is down.. Then I open steam and can't connect there. No matter what game (War3, CoH, Steam, Shattered Galaxy), I can't connect to the server but I can get on Yahoo! messenger and AIM. I've had this cpu and router for a while and never had this sort of problem before. I've been messing around and changing settings and nothing seems to fix it for a long period.

There is ONE weird thing and I don't know if it's related.. I've been having this problem for a while but I noticed that when my roommate (and his laptop) were not here, the problem didn't occur. I thought it was fixed, but today it's back and so is he. I don't know if it's a coincidence or how his laptop could possibly affect my cpu like this, but if you can help I'd be so happy.


A:Can't Connect to ANY servers

Sounds like the issue is with your router only routing your modem to one device, what kind of router do you have? I have had a similar problem and fixed it by changing my router settings to Gateway. If that doesn't work, google port forwarding and forward your ports to your PC.

Also, have you actually talked to anyone on AIM and Yahoo messenger? Because they could be false connections.

I've got this strange problem, would appreciate any help:

I have web space with two different companies,

I can load Internet Explorer and connect to them fine by entering the addresses into the address bar.

However, I can't connect to them using BulletProof or CoffeeCup ftp software.
When i try either server using either program, I get an error. In BulletProof it says error 10061 connection refused

Does anyone know if there is any options which might prevent me connecting through ftp software? or why this might be happening?

I presume it is a problem with my machine rather than my ISP restricting something, as I can connect using IE, which seems wierd.

I'm using Windows XP on dial-up net connection, with IE 6.

If anyone has any ideas I'd be most appreciative

Ok... For a while I thought it was my network that was causing these problems, but I went to a friends and brother my laptop, still couldn't connect to many different things (Itunes store, online games, updating Malwarebytes and AVG).

Hi there,

I'm having an issue with my work computer where it can connect to all of the servers in the company accross the country EXCEPT the servers located in New Jersey. I am running Windows XP SP3. I am able to ping the servers and get a response back, but my network drives are disconnected and I cannot open them. I have tried completely uninstalling the driver for my network adapter and reinstalling it with no affect. Mine is the only computer having this problem and I have uninstalled all software that was installed within the past month to be sure. It is ALL of the servers in New Jersey so I know it's a problem with my computer and not the serers. I had a similar issue a while ago where I could ping Google, but could not get to the website, and that ended up being the ZoneAlarm firewall that I had. That was fixed by uninstalling ZoneAlarm and doing an ipconfig /release & /renew.

My IT guy and I are completely stumped here and just don't know what to try next. I have read some posts about similar situations and re-registered some dlls but that didnt help either.

Please let me know if there is anything else that you can think of to try and get my computer to access the servers.

Thanks so much!

A:Cannot Connect to Certain Servers

There used to be a ZoneAlarm Removal Tool to clean up the mess ZA leaves behind, but it seems to have disappeared from the web. I guess you're now supposed to reinstall Windows to extinguish ZA's blockages.

You didn't install another firewall, right?

This could be a network problem but if it is, it's pretty weird because I can see a list of servers, it's just that when I try to join any of them it just gives me the message that says "connecting" and just sits there. Nothing ever happens. I haven't noticed any other problems when connecting to internet.

I'm pretty sure that Unreal Tournament uses the Quake 3 engine which is prone to this issue.

I don't know all of the solutions off the top of my head, but the most common one is that you need to patch the game. You are probably trying to connect to a server that is using a newer updating version of the game than what you have. Just google for Unreal Tournament 3 patch.

I was chatting with a friend on the Steampowered client, when my connection to the Steam servers cut out suddenly. I haven't been able to reconnect to that or any other kind of game server since.
Just before the issue arose, I had turned on Network discovery on my control panel. I have since changed it back, rebooted my computer, reset my router, and attempted a (failed) system recovery.

I'm connecting to the Internet using Wi-Fi, the router is TP-Link TL-WR841N. Browsing Web or downloading files with BitComet is smooth, the data is downloaded without a hitch. However, when I try to connect to a game server, including Steam, I cannot see most of the servers. Sometimes I can see one or two, but vast majority is invisible. Here is the overview of the router settings:

I was told by the ISP they block no ports, firewall is also not an issue, what can it be then?

What you need to do is either ping or do a trace route to the servers. The info you posted does nothing.

Hey all,

Every time I try to log in to my account, I get an error saying "Steam is having trouble connecting to the Steam servers."

I have tried re-installing Steam, deleting the ClientRegistry.blob file, and resetting my firewall. Nothing has helped.

I did some quick research about the problem and couldn't find anything that worked.

Anybody have ideas? I'd really like to play my games on Windows 8.

I can browse all over and download from nearly anywhere EXCEPT Microsoft's download servers and AVGs update server.

Using XP Home SP2 (build 2600). I use Firefox as my primary browser, but while troubleshooting this problem have tried everything in IE7 as well.

This has been going on for months, but I've only realized it in stages:
1- Months ago, tried to download SP3 and had some kind of trouble, so I gave it up as not important.
2- Then my ISP (Verizon High Speed Internet) decided to discontinue the free security package they used to provide thru Yahoo. I researched a little and decided to switch to Avira with Windows Defender. Loaded Avira okay, but trying to get Defender, I needed to run the MS Genuine Verification thing, but I couldn't download it. Gave up, uninstalled Avira and installed AVG free instead.
3- Later, needed to install an application (Media Center from NetLibrary) that wanted the .NET framework which, for some reason, isn't installed on my system (or isn't installed properly). Couldn't download the Framework.

This was when I got stubborn and spent many hours trying to track down issue. I can access all MS web pages, but whenever I click a link that takes me to an http://download.microsoft.whatever link, I get a message saying I can't make a connection with the server.
I figured that something was blocking access, so I messed around with AVG settings, Windows Firewall settings, with no result. To rule stuff out, I start... Read more

My laptop is able to connect to the internet, browse facebook, email, and the like, but when I try to connect to "application servers" (Thats the best way I can describe it) I am told that I dont have an internet connection or that I cant connect to the server at this time. Like I said, I am perfectly able to access the internet, but when I try to register my Kindle application with my account, or when I try to connect to the ubisoft servers to play Assassins Creed 2, or when I try to register my Byki application (language learner software) I am unable to connect. I'm not a tech expert, but I know enough about computers to tinker and look for problems, and have looked into everything I can think of.

I don't believe its an issue with my wifi because other laptops using the same home wifi network are able to do the very things that my computer cant.

I play a lot of computer games and generally I end up hosting the server for my friends.
A month or two back I had my PC die and just managed to fix it today with a new motherboard. I switched my Asus P8 P67 LE for a P8 Z77-V LX.
The motherboard seems to work fine and everything's going great except for the fact that suddenly no one can connect to any servers I host. I've been around the block and I understand port forwarding, so I know that's not my problem. We've tested on minecraft and the source engine, whenever I give someone my external IP (from whatsmyip.com) and they try to connect to it their connection times out. I can connect to the server on localhost just fine, but when I try to connect to myself through the external IP (Which usually works fine in minecraft) even I timeout.
I installed the realtek drivers that came with the motherboard so I'm really not sure what's up. Everything worked fine before the switch. Any idea what's up?

Running Windows 7 Ultimate With Linksys WRT54GS2 router on Clear WiMAX modem.

Outlook and Thunderbird will not work when the router is connected with the error could not find servers (one for gmail and one to my website host). I tried all the firewall solutions and router settings. When I unplug the router and connect directly with the modem, no problems. It would seem its the router but I think not.

I think its the network set up that happens when connecting to anything that forms a network. I notice that direct cat5 cable connections to other computers starts problems like loss of FTP and this is without a router. Is it possible its a port conflict that occurs when the system sets up a network or something in the network set up that blocks ports?

I have tried all firewall AV and router issues. I checked services to be sure nothing was disabled. I am at a loss. If its a registry or host file issue its beyond me. Thanks for any advice.

My dad updated our modem recently when we changed to a faster, broadband internet connection (Comcast). However, after this happened, I found out that I would disconnect from game servers in a short amount of time or could not connect to them at all. All that happens is the generic "This page could not be displayed..." message. I'm pretty sure this isn't a firewall problem, as I have tried with firewalls down before, nor is it a port forwarding problem, as I have made sure the correct ports are open and forwarded. Besides games, I can still surf the internet fine through browsers, but for in-browser MMORPGs, I also tend to disconnect frequently. Many other programs that access the internet also seem to have this problem, such as Outlook, in which I could access my email fine before but now can not connect.

My dad refuses to help (he thinks I shouldn't be playing games in the first place), but I hope someone out there can. Thanks.

Seems like it must be just a simple key stroke somewhere that is causing "unable to connect with this server" error.
Any suggestions?

So yesterday the power went out once it came back on, I couldnt connect to any servers (Google, Facebook, Multiple mmorpgs, minecraft etc) I dont know much about computers, but it either has to do with the power outage screwing with it.or a third party application messing with my computer (Plausible since my stepfather frequently downloads torrents) I dont know where to start If anyone could help. It would be greatly appreciated.

A:cannot connect to any servers. presumably malware?

Hi and welcome.

Lets take a look.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Make sure that under Optional Scans, there is a checkmark on Addition.txt and Shortcut.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another two logs (Addition.txt and Shortcut.txt). Please attach these to your reply.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but it's definitely an internet problem.

Started happening several days ago...

When I try to play multiplayer on Age of Empires 3 vanilla it always says "Failed to connect to ESO servers" after hanging for a little big on the "Connecting to ESO..." part.

My internet is working fine, as I can browse and play other online games without a hitch.

I've tried turning off windows firewall, disabling windows security essential real time protection, and turning off the verizon router firewall.
I've tried port forwarding, resetting my routers, and system restore, no results.
I tried playing on a different computer on the same network, and got the same problem, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with just my computer. I know the servers aren't down because my friend was playing at his house during this time no problem.

Grrr what should I do? Suggestions? Thanks!!

A:Failed to connect to ESO servers

I finally contacted verizon FIOS support....they refreshed my WAN connection and everything works fine now!

Hi, i'v been having a problem with my internet since october 2011. the problem i have is i cannot play ANY games online. i own an xbox, ps3 and gaming computer all with no luck in gaming. what happens exactly is call of duty on xbox 360 i can get onto xbox live join a room to play but as soon as i am in it lags for 10 seconds or so then boots me out saying lost connection to server. thought maybe it was my xbox so i tried my ps3 which had the same effect with a different game. i'v also tried battlefield on my computer which came up the same problem, disconnected from server instantly. i'v contacted my isp several times hoping they can figure out a solution, and when i say several i mean atleast 15 times. noone can seem to figure out a solution. my speed tests all come back good, and so do my ping tests. i had a technician come out and change my equipment on the roof because i thought maybe it was faulty which never helped. and i'v also went out and bought a brand new router, which never helped either. i'v tried connecting all my systems up directly to the modem and with no luck. i'm hoping someone can help me out, thank you!!
OH and my isp is xplornet and its fixed wireless internet, also i ran this for over a year with no problems playing online and they have tried me on a static ip which did not work either.
