Windows 7: Why don't all browsers work with Windows 7?

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Finally! I did the netsh windsock reset, reinstalled java, reinstalled Flash (which runs in both 32 and 64 bit versions of IE8) in both and Shockwave (which only runs in 32bit version) in 32 bit IE8 and now so long as I use the 32 bit IE8 both work. So far that is. Hope this has solved it. Thanks to everyone here at Windows 7 Forums for all your help. Sayonara for now my friends- Jack McElwee/K&K

New web browsers don't work!
I also posted this in general discussion, but I figure it probably fits better here. Whenever I install a new Internet browser, it stops working (it can't connect to the Internet). So I recently updated firefox and now I can't connect with it. And Opera has that new thing out that I wanted to...
