Hi Navin.. If you could just clarify - did you try the other tests I mentioned in my previous message? If I am understanding you right you did try the iexplore -extoff? And you also tried the new telnet command I suggested, as well as, unchecking all the options available under LAN settings in internet options, what were the results?

If you wouldn't mind, I would like to get a couple pieces of diagnostic information from you to determine what else could be blocking your internet. One is a bootlog, and one is information from a program called LspFix.

How to create and post your bootlog:

  • Shutdown and restart your computer.
  • After the initial power on screen and before the Windows XP screen, begin pressing F8 multiple times.
  • When the Advanced Startup Menu appears, choose "Enable Boot Logging." and press ENTER.
  • When asked which operating system you want to boot, press ENTER.
  • After your computer boots up completely, open My Computer.
  • Navigate to C:\Windows and find the NTBTLOG.TXT file.
  • Open C:\WINDOWS\NTBTLOG.TXT in your preferred text editor by double-clicking the file.
  • Scroll all the way to the bottom of the ntbtlog.txt file and begin moving up line by line until you find the first occurence (from the bottom) of, "Service Pack....."
  • Copy from the "Service Pack..." line to the bottom of the file.
  • Paste the contents here in the forum.

Then, if you could download LspFix.exe from here:
http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm

Run the lspfix.exe file and please tell me every file that is listed under "Keep" and, if any, under "remove." DO NOT make any modifications with this software, even if it suggests it. When you are done typing the filenames into the forum, just click the 'X' in the upper right hand corner of the software to close it.

the only other place I can think of is the wireless router. I disabled the firewall option and tried but still see the same issue.

This issue has stumped me since December. I have not had a chance to take my system outside to another network and see if I am able to connect from another network or not. I will try this option also and post back the results.

Thanks,
Navin


Our tests have already concluded that there are NO problems on your network. The problem IS with each computer. Taking the computer to another location should prove the same results.

Tests have shown that you are able to connect to the websites in question from the computer. Your browser is the only thing that is unable to connect to the website. This means it is only one of a few things. Either a browser add-on, a firewall/or the like, or bad proxy/LAN settings in internet options. I know this might not make sense at the time, but please provide the diagnostic information I requested. The tests are conclusive.

I use wireless.

To summarise my tests for appleoddity, I ran IE (iexplore -extoff) and Firefox (oddly firefox -safe-mode did not do it, so had to go to start->firefox ->fiefox safemode) in safemode and they both returned the same results - unable to load msn/microsoft/sun.

I booted the system in safe-mode disabled all the services and startup other than microsoft related services and I still had the same issue. I will try it once again though just to make sure that I hadn't missed out anything in frustration...:-).

I also used the telnet 207.46.250.101 80 and I got the bad request message.

I was playing around some more and I decided to run HijackThis and a particular line caught my attention :

O2 - BHO: WormRadar.com IESiteBlocker.NavFilter - {3CA2F312-6F6E-4B53-A66E-4E65E497C8C0} - D:\XApps\AVG\avgssie.dll

I am not sure if this BHO can cause a problem but some of the comments in various other forums seem to indicate that it might. But in my opinion, if I had disabled all services other microsoft then I should not have seen this issue and this is the reason i would like to run that test again.

Will run the tests that you have requested and post back the results later today.

Thanks,
Navin

Yes, please don't move ahead. Just post the diagnostic information I have requested.

The new information you have provided just reinforces the conclusion that the computer has no problem connecting to the websites in question. It also concludes that the three things I mentioned are the only things that can be causing your problem.

The wormradar BHO (a internet explorer add-on) is active regardless if you disable everything with msconfig. Any firewall is also active rather you disable everything with msconfig. That is why I need the extra information I am requesting.

It is unlikely that the wormradar BHO is causing the problem but it is possible. However, I am 100% positive that it is either an add-on, firewall/or the like, or bad LAN settings in internet options. Decide for yourself what that tells you. :) It is certainly easy enough to uninstall AVG and see if it solves your problem.

If you follow along with what I am requesting we will eventually get to the browser add-ons. The thing is, when you run IE with -extoff those add-ons should be disabled. But I doubt that IE really disables all the add-ons. There's probably some secret somewhere about add-ons that are allowed to still run.

Well, I'm about falling a sleep on my keyboard here, but I did look through your log. The only thing I see with any potential of causing you issues is AVG.

Looks like there are several wireless drivers loaded also. Could you plug the laptop directly into your router temporarily to verify there is no issue. (We may have done this already) The computer is connecting to the websites but maybe your wireless software is actually causing issues with your browser some how. Its an awful easy test to pass up.

If the problem persists after connecting the laptop directly to the router with a cable, please uninstall AVG for the time being and see if the problem is resolved.

If the problem still persists, please see here:

http://www.avg.com/download-tools

and download the AVG Remover to make sure AVG really is completely gone.

Careful that you don't get yourself infected while you are diagnosing this issue and uninstalling AVG. It would be best if you stayed off the internet (other than to test microsoft.com, etc..) until you get your anti-virus reinstalled.

I've got one more diagnostic tool for you to gather some information for me with if the problem still persists.

One more thing.

Could you please click start -> run and type cmd and press ENTER.

At the command prompt please type ipconfig /all > desktop\postme.txt and press ENTER.

Now, close the command prompt window. Please look on your desktop for a file called postme.txt, open it in notepad and copy and paste its contents to the forum.

I don't expect to find anything here after our other tests, but maybe something will stand out.

Thanks.

All, Success at last.....finally fixed the problem. The steps below detail my stupidity....:-( 1. Took the laptop outside of my home network and tested the connectivity with a different network. The sites loaded without any issues. This ruled out any applications currently loaded on the machine as the showstoppers. 2. Came back home and connected it directly to the modem. Again, all sites loaded without any issues. So the problem had to be on my wireless router. 3. Reset the router to factory default settings and tried to connect. Had the same issue that msn/microsoft/sun would not load on my browsers. 4. While fiddling around, I came across the "Upgrade Firmware" options and I decided to give it a shot. I have a Linksys WRT54G ver 2 purchased years ago. Looks like Cisco had been really busy since the firmware version on my router was way off from the current version. So got the latest version and upgraded the router. 5. Re-tried the connections and it all worked. All sites could now be accessed. I reloaded AVG and checked and everything is working just fine. I am not sure why the office laptop connected but the others had a problem. The only difference I can see is with IE version - it is 6 on the working machine and 7 on the others. But the firefox was the same. I may be inclined to do some more analysis in the coming days but for now, I would like to close this thread. Thanks to all of you for all the inputs. Navin

Yeah, it defintely doesn't make any sense. The telnet command connected to the website successfully, so it has to be something very specific where the router was actually intercepting specific packets and interrupting them. Anyways, if it was me I would've hooked up the packet sniffer and found out exactly what the thing was doing because something like this would've drove me nuts. Anyways, congratulations.

Hey guys

Its just the Dynamic IP assigned to Navin is blocked by some of the ISPs. I've got similar problem too and I am able to open the same site with proxy...

When Navin reset the router, his dynamic IP address got renewed... It doesn't matter how many PCs you got in the same network or browsers in your PC... All of them access the internet with the same IP address...

Check whether your IP address is in any of the SPAM database
http://whatismyipadd...ess-blacklisted

Easiest way to solve this problem is to switch off the router and switch it back on after 2 or 3 minutes... You might be assigned with a new dynamic IP address and it should solve the problem (hopefully)...

:thumbup:

Thats from my experience... Please correct me if I am wrong...

Edit: Removed advertising.

Hi folks, Sorry to resurrect a thread, but since this problem seems to be so closely related to a problem I'm having, I thought I'd jump in :-) On my win XP laptop (SP2), I can't access www-files.opendns.com (www.opendns.com works fine, but all the images and css on the site are loaded from www-files). I can do a nslookup, but can't ping or telnet on port 80 (ping times out, it knows what IP to ping) I've tried IE , FF 3 (in both normal and safe mode), and Chrome. All the same result. I am also running AVG (which is how my search found this thread). Booting windows into safe mode still doesn't fix it. It's very strange... I can access other sites fine, and can access www-files.opendns.com via a proxy. I'm about to test a few other things, but just wanted to put the post up for some first ideas... Also worth mentioning, a colleague's MAC connects to the site fine... Any help appreciated... it's driving me nuts. I want to setup opendns for our organisation, however if I can't access the management site, it makes it a bit hard!

I get nothing (a blank page with Done at the bottom) when I go to www-files.opendns.com. If I go to www.opendns.com then everything loads correctly.

Sorry,

I should be more explicit. I'm not trying to load www-files.opendns.com per se, rather trying to load www.opendns.com

However, opendns.com loads a bunch of content that is hosted at www-files.opendns.com. When I try to load opendns.com I just get a mangled mash of text, with no formatting, no images, and it takes forever to load. When checking the source code for the page, it shows that it loads a bunch of content from www-files.opendns.com

When I try to access any of the content directly eg http://www-files.ope...g/home_free.gif it times out... I can't ping www-files.opendns.com nor telnet to it on port 80, hence leading me to believe that my problem is with www-files.opendns.com.

Does that clarify a bit?
