Running Winxp, sp3.

Unable to update Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebyte's Anti-malware, Spybot Search and Destroy or Lavasoft Adaware.

Error messages indicate internet connection is not working, but I can browse using Firefox.

One of the programs above gave me an error message of cannot connect to, so maybe this is a hosts file problem?
