[Solved] Browser Blockage Friends, At some point in the last week, something happened to block my browsers from connecting to the internet. Other applications such as a weather gadget, Spybot S&D, etc. can connect but neither IE, Chrome or Malware Bytes can. A Java update carped about settings & refused to procede. I have uninstalled Java, turned the firewall off & on, run virus/malware scans, etc. but no joy. MalwareBytes, Windows Defender & Spybot all failed to turn up anything. Anyone have any ideas?
