Windows 7: IE Not Connecting to Internet

31 May 2010   #1

IE Not Connecting to Internet

My IE 8 has stopped accessing the internet (running Windows 7) and displays the message shown below when I try to connect. I have tried a few different sites and keep getting the same message. Firefoc connects no bother and another PC connected to the same router works fine in IE 8. I have the original Windows 7 disk and have tried running a repair but this makes no difference. Is there any way I can download IE 8 and re-install. From looking at the microsoft website there is no option to download the Windows 7 version as it ships with Windows 7. Have tried the Vista one but does not work. I have stopped using the 64 bit version but that makes no difference either.

"The remote device or resource won’t accept the connection."
