Eh? I don't get what you mean. I'm a complete klutz at technical difficulties. XD
Alright maybe not a complete klutz but you know what I mean.
Basically, different browsers use different means to connect to the internet. Since more than one browser is having internet connectivity issues it's probably computer related rather than a problem with just IE9. If you still have IE9 installed I'd suggest uninstalling it.

How do I install or uninstall Internet Explorer 9?

Then I'd run a System File Check to see if your computer has any incorrect, corrupted, changed, or damaged system files. If it does SFC will try to install the correct versions if possible. (If SFC finds any problems, run the scan 3 times because sometimes not every file can be repaired/replaced on the first or even second scan.)

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Uninstalled IE9, Then ran the system check once, it fixed something, restarted, ran 2 more system checks, tested IE, it doesn't work. Firefox and Opera are helpless too. Chrome is the only survivor...

EDIT:
Ran a program, it said:
Quote:
Warning from libevent: evsig_init: socketpair: Permission denied [WSAEACCES ]
Warning from libevent: evthread_make_base_notifiable: socketpair: Permission denied [WSAEACCES ]
Error from libevent: event.c:1388: Assertion base failed in event_base_get_method
Will that help

For clarification, when you say you "tested IE" was that the default IE8 that comes with Windows 7 or did you reinstall IE9? If it was IE8 there might be some other issues. Can you access System Restore and do you have a restore point that goes far enough back in time to before you started having these problems? See Option One, Item 7, in this tutorial to access additional restore points.

System Restore
Well, yeah. I uninstalled IE9. So I got IE8 back. But the problem started when I had IE9... So maybe something else got installed?
Restore Points are always last resort for me... Plus I don't remember the date lol.
I'll be installing some updates now XD. Definitely unchecked IE9.

There have been some reported issues when people installed IE9, so it's certainly possible that something else got messed up. Sorry for the next few stupid questions ... just trying to think out loud here.

Did you manually install IE9 or was it through the Windows Updates? The final was released to web around the middle of March if I remember correctly. Did the problems start immediately after installing or some time thereafter (hours, days, weeks?) Am I correct that Firefox and Opera began having problems just a couple of days ago when you edited your post? Definitely a strange situation.

IE9 was installed from Windows Update. The problem began immediately and you're right about Firefox and Opera.
Strange that Chrome still works.

I hate to leave a problem unsolved but I'm running out of ideas. IE9 had problems immediately after being installed. Firefox and Chrome followed some time thereafter. What do they all have in common? Java? Other plug-ins? Have you tried something like Secuniua PSI to make sure that all of your other programs (that may interact with these browsers) are up to date and patched?

Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI)

Unless someone else can offer other ideas, that last resort System Restore might be the way to go. I'd really like to find out why the problem occurred in the first place and what the solution turns out to be.

Oh my, lady luck must be turning her back at me, for Secunia Personal Software Inspector is bound by the limits which holds back IE itself:

I must be reading a LOT of novels lately... I'm getting kind of poetic...

Have we tried running netsh winsock reset on afflicted machines? If Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc all have trouble accessing the internet, the only thing they have in common is the winsock layer (and it's related 3rd party LSP and TDI drivers on the stack). Does a winsock reset make any difference?

IE9 has better font rendering than Firefox 4, which I also use regularly.
Tried Chrome recently and it had problems with some sites I use, so gave up on it.
Hiyya Zirro see we are both down under yet you seem to get IE9 regularly good and Fire 4 no probs?

My IE9 runs hot and cold (some days light speed and Firefox never a hitch although I do prefer the features of IE having got use to them over the years.

By the way which IE do you use most of the time 32 or 64bit? I find 64bit runs a tad better but NO flaming Youtube yet!! so 32bit for it.

Agree with the Chrome was a wasted try really didn't like al the ads and crap dingles and dongles that accomanied it. Plus I had a gut feeling it was watching me like a hawk - I know they probably all do but C seemed extra obvious.

Still my immediate problem is damn emails - grief it's a jungle eh? so....
