FIXED IE 8 UNCONNECTIVITY PROBLEM

I have had the same problem trying te get IE 8 to connect to the internet, so, after troubleshooting a java installation problem, I discovered why IE 8 wasn't connecting and I have solved the problem [for me at least].

1.Enable proxy settings in Internet Options
Control Panel > Network and Internet > Internet Options > Connections tab > LAN Settings > Click the box "Use a proxy Server for your LAN..."
