Since a few days ago (Oct 23-ish), I have a problem. IE and Outlook Express just hang in the connect process with no message, and give "Not Responding" on close. However, I can connect through Network Connections panel successfully and then Outlook and IE work as normal. So more of an irritant than a show stopper.
Firefox has never connected by itself, I always have to connect first (normally by opening Outlook).
I am not aware of having made any changes, apart from the normal Microsoft automatic updates.
I use Windows XP firewall, and neither Windows Defender or AVG virus scan show anything abnormal.

I have tried resetting various settings and passwords in IE and Outlook definitions, but to no avail.

I am interested to know if this is widespread and, more importantly, if anyone knows of a fix.

Microsoft has a fix for a similar problem "...when connecting Outlook to an HTTP server" but that doesn't cure my problem.
