How can I 'fix' telnet port 80?

After a couple of posts about my problem, I need to attempt to solve it by fixing the most likely course of all the annoying internet problems. Nearly all responses have attributed it to telnet port 80, so how can I possibly fix/open or correct the issue?

Can you access a site on port 80? Is port 80 the problem? Port 80 is normally used for http, so by using telnet we test between a browse issue and a port issue. We still don't know what your issue is.

Try a linux live cd if all else fails.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I had posted about the issue before, but I am
pretty sure that it is a PORT problem not a
browser issue. The reason I say this is
because it is effecting all 3 browers on my
system, IE, Chrome and FF. I have checked the
settings for each respective one and nothing
appears to be wrong. The problem I have has
extended to the update programs for other
programs, I can no longer update my free anti
virus software.

I can use MSN and receive email but even that
'breaks' after a while. I am positive it isnt
a virus of any sort. Further more, on my
other posts I was told it was a telnet port
80 problem after listing what is wrong.
