Can't download google updates (+++) even thou IE11 is running fine

Hi-Have HP P6000 Win 7 Home Prem 64 bit: IE11 allows me to visit any web site but when I attempt to
update programs (ex: Google Chrome, Spybot and...) I get message that 'NO internet connection'.
Have disabled firewall, NOT running any antivirus right now (system had Norton 360 and McAfee in past but currently are not enabled - via msconfig). Any help is greatly appreciated...jnh999
