Failed to Connect

Specs: Windows Vista
I'm trying to update my antivirus but it is not allowing me to update. Due to "invalid server/ proxy settings"

In addition I am trying to download the Games for windows- Live update and when I go to download a new tab opens saying:

Failed to Connect

The connection was refused when attempting to contact

I've tried turning off my firewall but nothing seems to help. Any ideas?

MS might be refusing connections from a proxy server. It could be that you never set the browser to use a proxy but someone may have hijacked your DNS.

Run ipconfig /all from a command prompt. Look at the DNS entries. Do they belong to your ISP?
