Hey all!

Someone got me to look at their PC running vista...

Firefox or IE won't connect to the internet ie I get a 'cannot display the website' error. I think windows updates are still working tho.

I tried on their connection, and also here on my network... I can ping google fine, and the 'network and sharing centre' shows connection to the internet is green ie ok.
I ran malware bytes and avast scan in safemode... nothing to report.

Any ideas? Something is blocking the browsers...

I just ran the command 'telnet google.com 80' and got the error 'could not open the connection to the host, on port 80.'
