Some browsers cannot access the net

Some browsers cannot access the net. Firefox can but not the rest - Chrome, Opera CDragon.
I have uninstalled Comodo - no change.

Firefox can access the internet so your network configuration is fine. Even internet explorer can't access internet on that pc?

What error message do you get?

Firefox & Internet Explorer can access the net. But Chrome & Comodo Dragon & QT Web & Iron cannot.
Its on both PCs. I had Win7FW & WFN (notifier) running. Replaced with comodo. WFN was removed via the highlight & delete function from programs folder. It doesn't appear in Revo's uninstaller.

Comodo Dragon & QT Web & Iron => they are based on same framework (WEBKIT) as chrome.
Maybe reinstalling them and/or chrome will solve the problem.

Did you try disabling all virusscanners/firewalls (temporary)?

Found the problem............ after I uninstalled the AV & FW. It was Windows 7 FW. Needed a reset to default settings. Probably confused after being indecently assaulted by multiple external FWs & AVs in one day.

All's well that ends well. Case solved.

External firewalls don't change win7fw. Unless.... they are just a fancy interface to win7fw. WoKhan Is what you used??? It's simply a win7fw configuration tool. Simply uninstall it won't revert the configuration modifications.

Glad you fixed the problem
