Hello everyone, It seems I can't access the interweb from my Windows XPSP3. My internet connection is fine, works on my other computers connected to the network, and works if I boot into linux. I can play multiplayer games just fine ect...google talk lets me chat with people and alerts me to emails; also, if I right click the google chat icon and click inbox, it actually takes my to my inbox and I can email people. Gmail does NOT work if I try to access by typing in the URL, as with any other web page. Avira updates would not download due to connection error, until I changed the update option from proxy to something else. MSN Messenger will not let me sign in. Malwarebytes, Avira, Avast, appear clean. I don't remember screwing around, but it seems as though i've messed up some of my connection settings, especially considering the Avira update. ~ Thanks.
