vista problem-iexplorer not working but still connected to internet

By uasaydahmat ·
hi! i live on campus and i'm running vista on my laptop.
i woke up one morning and iexplorer wasn't working. I restarted my comp and cleared my browsing history and what not. I had a friend come in and brought my pc to the IT center and no one knows what to do. thought maybe it was a hardware problem but i can access IM programs and it says i'm connected to the internet. I installed firefox, still nothing. i reset all of the settings on iexplorer...tried it with my firewall off. i'm not sure, i went to bed a little before 2am that night and i think my comp. is set to run updates automatically at 2am so i think maybe there was a corrupt vista update or something?
i really have no idea and now i've run out of ideas!
if someone could help i'd greatly appreciate it!
thanks!!

Vista issues

Check your Windows updates and look for update KB935280 and if you have it installed uninstall it and reboot your laptop. That should resolve it.

Thanks,

System Restore

by rickrbyrne In reply to Vista issues

Also if you find that uninstalling that Update doesn't work, try a system restore back to a date that you know worked.

try safari- It works even though IE and Firefox won't

by cosnet1 In reply to vista problem-iexplorer n ...

I too am experiencing the same thing.. Both IE and Firefox
seem to be using a bad dns but safari works great.
I don't know why.. I have tried flushing dns but it does not
help. Yet Safari works fine..
Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?
