Can you access https traffic? (Try https://www.google.co.uk/)
Which browser are you using?
Im having some problem with an old XP home edition machine. Basically I can't get online. The LAN connection is okay. I even get windows updates and updates for malawarebytes but when I go online it's just says Internet explorer cannot display the page. I had Sp3 installed so I removed that but made no difference. Any ideas? Thanks
Have you tried a different browser?
Had issues a few weeks ago on Win7 machines with an IE Update that broke it.
have you checked the proxy settings? does another browser work?
Yes. The pc has chrome and opera installed but none working. Ive checked the proxy. Ive reset the user settings too in internet options.
Have you tried pinging a web site? Also, have you got another device on the same router and does that work?
Reset the Windows Firewall to defaults and disable any third party firewalls (if applicable).
I have loads of device as I'm in a school. Also I have just pinged googles website successfully.
I've disabled the windows firewall already but made no diff. I have sophos installed. Could it be that?
Try rebooting into Safe Mode with Networking. If this works (which I suspect it will), you just need to work out what program(s) are creating the problem.
If it doesn't work in Safe Mode with Networking, then I would re-image the workstation if possible.
Do you have any software installed such as Cisco AnyConnect? Something like this could block but would say it is blocked for a reason
Im trying to reboot the pc in safe mode but doest give me that option. I pressed F8 before startup but that gives me the boot selection only. F2 for Bios and F3 was something else. How do you boot xp in safe mode?
It sounds like you're hitting F8 too early, and ending up with a BIOS selection notification.
I'd turn the PC on, give it a slow 10 count, then start pressing F8.
You're looking for the Windows Advanced Options menu.
I have just fixed it!yay! All i did was uninstalled Sophos! Thank you guys for all the suggestions!
