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

I have no recollection. I rarely use steam, install updates, or use chrome or IE, so if there was a problem earlier, I wouldn't have noticed. I was in the process of installing a new antivirus program (housecall) when I noticed it wouldn't connect to the internet. That was a few weeks ago. I've been scouring forums for help since then. I have no idea what kind of problem this is...

If Firefox works and IE and Chrome doesn't then that has to do with settings inside them . Have you tried resetting the settings in IE ?

Click on inside type Internet Options and press Enter . Inside the Internet Options window click on the Advanced tab and click on the Reset... Button . Place a check next to Delete personal settings click on Reset button . Waiting until you get four green checks click on the Close button and close the Internet Options

Yeah, I've tried that too. How can this be possible? I know that FireFox connects differently from IE and Chrome. Might the problem be related to WinHTTP or WinSock? I don't know much about how those work.

Take a look at your Windows Firewall and your Antivirus software for firewall settings .

Add Google Chrome

Location : C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe

APPDATA is a hidden folder . To unhide follow the steps below
  • Click on the Start button and select Computer
  • Press the Alt key on your keyboard and click on Tools or click on Organize
  • Select Folder Options
  • Click the View tab and make sure that Show hidden files and folders is selected under Hidden files and folders
  • Click Apply then click OK

I tried that just now. I even tried turning it all off, but nothing changes. This must be annoying you as much as it's annoying me by now.

Did you delete the 128 proxy IP Address inside the registry ?

Can you try to open Internet Explorer ( No Add-ons ) see if that works ? We are seeing if any add ons inside explore is stopping you from connecting .
