Following a reinstall of Windows 7 from a factory disc, explorer will allow me to surf the web but as soon as I attempt to login to any page explorer cannot show webpage.

 

I have restored defaults, deleted temp files, disabled add-ons.  Being a clean install there are no anti virus programs or firewalls active.

 

Next step please?

Have you applied all system updates?

Yes.  there were tons of them.  and i just found that there is a separate forum for this issue.

 

Odd that it would happen on a fresh re-install.

 

any favorite approach would be welcomed.

You might want to try rolling your IE update back to IE 9 instead of 10, then see if you have better performance on the internet.

Try a browser other than IE?  I suggest Firefox, not Chrome.

 

Post exact error message, if any.
