    Default Firefox connects, but IE & Chrome will not connect to Internet

    I can only connect using Firefox. Neither Internet Explorer nor Chrome can connect.
    I have tried allowing them through Windows firewall but that does not help.
    I should mention that when I shut down and restart they are not then allowed
    through the firewall.
    The only anti virus program I use is Microsoft Security Essentials which I
    understand does not have the facility to allow or disallow programs.
    Any suggestions?

    I need more info.
    Exactly what do you mean by "connect" ?
    When you "tried allowing them through Windows firewall", how did you do it ?
    What settings do you use for Windows Firewall ?
    Are you blocking outgoing connections ?
    If so, did you create any rules for IE and Chrome ?

    I havenīt usen MSE in a long time, but last time I used it MSE didnīt have any options to block any connections.

    Since Firefox can connect, but Internet Explorer and Chrome cannot connect, I suggest you clear your Internet cache and then Reset IE and Reset Chrome and see if that works.
