|Hello, everyone out there. I'm having quite a bit of trouble with my internet browsing lately. |
Yesterday, my computer initiated an automatic update the way it always does, following with an automatic reset after five minutes of me ignoring it. After my computer rebooted, the problems began. My Firefox browser could not display any web pages after this update to my operating system (Windows xp Home Edition). Every web page I tried to load said something like "Connection interrupted while the page was loading. Please try again"
Needless to say, no matter how many times I tried, it simply would not work. Now, the internet is obviously not having some freak incident because I'm able to post here. And the two other computers in my house connect just fine as well. I'm posting here on the affected computer by booting Backtrack 3 from a usb drive, so my computer has a connection to the web. And the strangest thing, I think, is that my Windows Live instant messenger still works on Windows. I've tried loading several different web browsers to Windows such as Google Chrome and Avant Browser all to no avail. My Internet explorer also can't connect.
So, my question is: Why can't my web browsers connect after a normal, routine automatic update to my system while my instant messenger can?
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
