After getting rid of a virus that caused pop ups, I am no longer able to access the web via windows explorer. I have windows XP. The message I get when trying to log on says: Windows cannot connect to the Internet using HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the HTTP port (80) HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21).

Hi,

Windows cannot connect to the Internet using HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the HTTP port (80) HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21).

  • Open Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings.
  • Uncheck the box next to "Use proxy...."
  • Alternatively, Go to Start > Run > CMD > OK.
  • A DOS window will appear (black box).
  • Type in the following (what's between the quotes), "netsh winsock reset".
  • Press the 'Enter' key.
  • Reboot your system to complete the process.
