I have disabled Windows Firewall on the Windows 7 machine, and all anti-virus software, but I still have this issue. Can anyone help me and give me some instructions on what I should do?
Two easy things to try, first
You can change browsers FF is a good choice and used by many or
you could type turn off windows in search. Then click on window features and then un check the IE box. This in effect turns off your IE.
Now turn off the computer
Boot up and turn windows back on. Remember until you turn it back on, you have no internet connection, until you restore IE.
Try either one of these, it may or may not work.
