Windows 7: Only FireFox (and a handful of other programs) can connect!

It appears I've done this before.
I must've downloaded the correct file earlier when I said I hadn't.
Attached is the first attempt's SvcRepair.log.
Sorry for any confusion.

I forgot to mention that I installed WDO on a usb via an uninfected computer. I'm not sure what I should do next. Could someone please clarify?
Yes, "real life" takes up a lot of mind power! By the time I get away from it all I'm usually too exhausted to face this task.
So, I thank you all for your perseverance =)
Cheers~

Thank you so much for running that ESET tool. It helps me know when to suggest it and when not to.

For WDO, reboot the computer having the issue and see if it will boot using the mini OS that is now on that USB stick. If the computer just boots into Windows like it normally does, then you can restart again and go into BIOS to change the device boot order so that the computer will boot to the USB stick.

If you don't feel comfortable messing with BIOS settings, the tap F9 or F10 or F11 or F12 maybe the DEL key (different vendors use different keys) during the reboot to get to the boot menu - select the USB deice from that menu.

This is very old and your BIOS and boot menu will not look like this:

But around the 1 minute mark, the boot menu is shown.

So I booted from the USB, but surprisingly not much could be done since it needed a connection to update and tackle whatever the scan results were! I performed a quick scan. After it was done, all I got was a message saying something about a lack of a connection to the internet. Another option was to update, which I tried. Got an error relating to a lack of an internet connection. Strange...

WDO has given us some good info. You now have a second opinion (from a second operating system) that connectivity to the internet is limited. There is something that we do not know/understand about your network.


I'll see if others know what to try next.

I looked around a bit on this problem and apparently there is a registry setting that can have an effect.

Go Start > type in the search box "regedit" (without the quotes), then hit Enter. This will bring up your registry editor.

Then you just follow the directory and drill down to the location.


Go into this location

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

Look for Proxy Enable key, if the value is set to 0x0000000(1), right-click it, Modify and put in 0.

The other one that says ProxyServer which is 5 below the one that's already renamed as OLDProxyserverOLD, try renaming that one as well.
