Windows 7: Network issues, only some applications can access the internet.

14 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 64 bit
Network issues, only some applications can access the internet.

Hey guys, had this problem for a while now but not bothered to fix it. For some reason some programs can't access the internet, but others can, some examples:

Can access internet: Google Chrome, Spotify...

Can't access internet: Minecraft.exe, Maya Activation, WinRAR, some others...

At first I thought it could just be 32bit programs that have the problem, but I just had a look at my Chrome shortcut location, and it's within the 32bit programs folder:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe"
I have disabled all my port forwarding within my router settings, no luck, even restored it to factory settings, so nothing there.

I have reset my internet settings back to default in-case I had changed something there at some point, again, no luck.

Get this error from Minecraft (Game) which uses Java, shows some error codes that could help.
Downloading: (try 10/10)
Exception: Unrecognized Windows Sockets error: 10104: create
Unable to download remote file. Check your internet connection/proxy settings.
Any ideas? The main annoyance i'm getting from this issue at the moment is being unable to activate my student version of Autodesk Maya which I need for my University Work.
