Mysterious download problems in windows 7

November 19, 2011 at 06:16:40
Specs: Windows 7
Some downloads won't download.. help me please.
2 days ago I could download normal, but now some won't downlad.
Every time I open Fire fox I have to put "no proxy" for Internet to work (same on IE).
Even Bit Torrent won't download anything anymore, every time I try to download a torrent, it goes to the Fire fox download page but keeps "stating" download but never really starts... When I download a game that uses its own download server (not sure if that's what it's called), the server doesn't connect, I tried other game sites, but the same thing happens, it fails to connect.
Anyone know what could be the problem? I don't really konw about PC and Internet =s
Tyvm in advance.

You probably have some firewall running. Maybe some garbage like Norton.

I was using Avira, but I changed to Avast. How do I see if I have a firewall running? An is there anything I can do?

What are the Avast settings? What are the settings in Windows Firewall or Windows Defender?
