Hello, I bought a new Dell Laptop 2 weeks ago, and I recently was using the internet just fine, Then I installed Firefox 3 and browsers won't connect,
Mozilla says it is Vista, And Microsoft says its Mozilla!
The error when I try to update windows is Code80072EFD, So everything from Microsoft tells me is to disable Firewalls, and I have completely installed COMODO, and disabled Windows Firewall. But It CANT be COMODO since Everything was working fine until last night when I installed Firefox 3.
Bitlord and MSN still work and connect to the internet but Explorers won't work. I don't get it..

So, To sum it all up: Internet working fine with COMODO Firewall, Installed Firefox 3 and No Internet explorer or Firefox working, nor does windows update, However, MSN and Bitlord still connect and work.

I don't know what other info anyone helping might need.

Any help will be grateful,
Thanks you

Firefox 3 is different from Firefox 2 - so Comodo may need new rules for it.

Programs that can cause this error include firewalls, anti-spyware software, web accelerators, Internet security or antivirus programs, and proxy servers.

I'd review all of the rules that Comodo has to see if Port 80 is open, and see if IE and Firefox are allowed access.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
