Hi Guys,


Recently I am having some problems with ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED on any web browser.

This occurs on page like Youtube, Google Docs, Google Product Forum, etc.

When I restart my Computer it is fine. I was able to watch youtube until about maybe 30 mins in, then the error appears on future clicks.

I have done various things that I found suggestions online such as:

  • Clearing Internet browsing data.
  • Turn off chrome proxy settings ( which I have never used)
  • DNS to
  • Malwarebytes Scan
  • Avast Scan
  • Winsock Scan

I also do not have a system restore point.

Any Idea guys?

Thank alot.

I am using Windows 8.1, 64 bit and also had the same problem ("ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED") that only happened on Google Chrome. On clicking on the "Detail" on the right of the error message, the problem lies with "", in my case. So I went to the settings and opened  "Manage search engines .." box in the Search section, and while scrolling down, I saw that "Google Desktop," was made a "Default", so I switched over to Google as the default. Hope that might be of any help.
