Hi,

I've been struggling with this problem for a few days now. The problem is that I do NOT have internet access for firefox/chrome/dropbox/etc but i DO have internet access for IE and certain OS apps (like Network Troubleshooter and weirdly Filezilla). I've read and tried most of the typical solutions with no avail.

What I've Tried:
  • Safemode with Networking - same situation, I can use IE but not Firefox/Chrome/etc
  • Reseting Winsock (netsh winsock reset, etc) - didn't work, possibly just made matters worse?
  • Flushing DNS (ipconfig /flushdns, etc)
  • I do NOT have a special proxy, and neither firefox, nor chrome, nor IE are trying to use one
  • I have added exceptions in Windows Firewall, then just straight up disabled the firewall
  • I have Avira antivirus, but it does not contain any firewall features and no place that I can see to add any such exception
  • LSP-Fix.exe (I tried to fix the LSP registery, it found 1 problem from leftover Bonjour dll, and I've repaired it but its changed nothing)
  • I ran quick-scan on malwarebytes - found nothing
  • I ran checkdisk and found no errors
  • I have no system restore point

Also, with firefox, I hve tried it in safe-mode and created a new profile, but that hasn't changed anything. When I try to make a connection with firebug open, it says the request was "aborted"

One background point, I had originally been struggling with my Wifi drivers because my wifi would connect to some but not all routers. In trying to fix this I rolled back my drivers to a previous verions and also booted into safe mode with networking. In safemode I did a winsock reset (netsh winsock reset/etc). The wifi started working properly (I have no ide which part of the process fixed it) but it was also at the same time that I stopped getting internet on Firefox/Chrome and only have it with IE.

Because native Microsoft software (IE, OS software) has no problem connecting to the internet, I'm just trying to figure out what bridge was burned between firefox/chrome and the working internet connection. It must be at a decently "low level" because safe-mode doesn't correct the problem. Does anyone hve any new suggestions? Or perhaps I am overlooking something obvious with the things I have already tried?

Thank you so much in advance!! I really really don't want to have to reformat - I'm in law school and don't have the extra time right now.
