Hello tallman27 Welcome to the Seven Foorums!

There are a pairr of steps you can try to resolve this. Since you are running one of the full featured editions of W7 you can try disabling the TCP Checksum Offload as well as verify you have the correct option selected in the Network & Sharing Center found in the Control Panel.

If you are running into the "DNS server cannot be found" error you would try disabling that. First however click on the network icon seen the N&S Center to bring up the screen and select the Home option to see if you reconnect as shown in the first screen below.

If that doesn't work you then go to the N&S Center and click on the change network adapter setting link found on the left column. A right click on the connection for the properties>configure button>Adanced tab will bring you to the second screen where you simply scroll down the list of items.

I have the same problem with Internet Explorer 8 in the XP Mode using Windows 7 32 bit. Internet Explorer works okay in Windows 7. Internet Explorer was working for a while in the XP Mode. Mozilla works without any problems in the XP Mode.

Internet Explorer open with MSN Home Page. When I try to go to microsoft.com I receive the message Webpage Cannot be found HTTP 400. I tried yahoo.com Internet Explorer stalled.

I uninstalled XP Mode and reinstalled it I get the same error with Internet Explorer. I checked Mozilla and it works fine.

Welcome to SF! courtyard

The situation with the XP Mode is a bit different from the start there over what is seen with the 7 host OS. On the XP Mode you use XP's not 7's network setup wizard, settings, and troubleshooting tools.

There is one thing you can try however which would be downloading the XP version of IE 8 to the XP Mode's own C drive on the VPC there and reinstalling IE 8 over itself to correct any problems. Back when running both 7 RCs and the XP Mode's own RC was first seen I ran into a similar problem and simply downloaded a fresh copy of IE 8 to clear that up.

The image attached here shows the device manager item as well as bringing up the network properties screen on the XP Mode. Here that one time only was when IE 8 or any other browser tried out on the XP Mode failed to connect.

I unisntalled IE 8 and replaced with IE 6 SP3. I get the same error message HTTP 400. I ran the diagnose connection problems there are no connection errors. I can now get to microsoft.com but any link I try to go in microsoft.com the message HTTP 400 appears.

Since you continue to see the same problem when reverting to the old version one suggestion would be trying the general tips for fixing HTTP 400 errors at HTTP Error 400 Bad request

You will want to stay with IE 8 however over reverting to the now outdated and far less secure older version. Another MSDN reference for troubleshooting HTTP 400 errors can be seen at How to troubleshoot HTTP 400 errors

I have reinstalled IE 8. I run a couple of applications in the XP Mode that do not work in Windows 7 32 bit. I only use IE for Windows Updates. Once in a while to upgrade the application software.

It may be the Virus Protection not being monitored with all the Windows updates. I will try adding anti-virus software.
