Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox are not working in Windows 8

Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox are not working in Windows 8

I found this on another forum and it worked for me.
This problem usually has to do with TCP/IP or Winsock requiring a reset.
Winsock entries tells Windows 7 how to access your network services. Additionally, your TCP/IP protocol can
be corrupted. The TCP/IP protocol is a stack of 4 layers that includes several transport layers, but when this stack is corrupt you will constantly have connectivity issues.
You need Admin access to enter the codes below. Windows button + x, then choose Command Prompt (Admin)
netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)
You may have to reinstall Chrome and Firefox or reboot to have the chnage take place.
This seems to be the only solution to my problem, however this is temporary. Any advice on a more permanent resolution?
I have also tried  to disable  "Automatically detect settings" under: "Internet Options/Connections/LAN settings/Automatically
detect settings".
This has no affect.

    Want to know if Internet Explorer 10 and 11 are they compatible with Windows Server 2008 32 bit?

    Compare & contrast:
    Internet Explorer 11 system requirements
    Internet Explorer 10 system requirements
    Internet Explorer 9 system requirements
    Neither IE11 nor IE10 is supported in Vista either.

  • No Audio in internet explorer, captivate playbar close button not working

    I did a simulation video in adobe captivate 5.5, on uploading it to Netdimension s LMS, the course plays audio via firefox but wont play audio from Internet explorer.
    Also Firefox autoresumes from where the user last stops but won't in Internet explorer. Also the exit button in my captivate playbar doesnt work neither in my internet explorer browser nor firefox.
    I also noticed that the LMS didnt mark the course completed after taking all the slides.
    Please help!

    Hi there
    My guess is that you are opening those from version 3 in a different manner than you are the version 4 sims. As I understand it (and as explained in the link) the ability to close a window is dependent on the browser as well as the manner in which the window was opened to begin with.
    I suggest you begin by scrutinizing what is different about the version 3 files that you are seeing. Where are you running them from? How are you displaying them?
    Cheers... Rick

  • Adobe Flash player (I ran scan & got "You have version 9,0,45,0 installed") works on internet explorer emails, BUT it does not work using firefox keeps giving me a pop up need Flash 9 or higher.

    I have Adobe Flash player 9 or higher (I ran your scan-You have version 9,0,45,0 installed) and it always works with Internet Explorer emails BUT every time I click to open incoming email I get a pop up "need to install flash 9 or higher". What can I do? Can I get rid of it? It only happens in internet mail.

    Visit [ this Adobe page] with both browsers to update your Flash version; Firefox uses a different install than IE, so having one doesn't mean you have the other.

  • Distorted images in internet explorer, chrome, and firefox

    Hello everyone.
    it's my first time writing in a forum.i have just bought a dell notebook inspiron 15 which i upgrated from windows 8 to windows 8.1. (First time working with windows 8.)  i'm having distorted images at some sites, double or blurry either in internet explorer
    firefox or chrome. also very often i'm getting an error message that the web page cannot be viewed(in explorer) and in firefox that i should communicate with the web page in order to inform them that . when i refresh the page loads why does that there a problem with the browsers or are the websites outdated?
    In addition,  web players other than youtube, like for example JWplayer start playing for a moment and then stop.After refreshing they stop at the same spot. i have the latest update of adobe flash and no problem with my internet connection.
    thank you in advance
    Anna, Greece
    p.s i should note that i'm not very used in computer language so a simple explanation will be very welcomed. :)

    This pages all display fine in my PC, for IE, you can click Tools\Internet Options\Advanced, then under "Accelerated graphics" enable or disable hardware acceleration to check for hardware or software compatibility issues with viewing certain Internet websites.
    Or under "Multimedia", enable automatic image resizing, check the result.
    or clear browser history, temporary internet files, tools\internet options\general\delete... or reset IE as a test.
    These are solutions for IE, since this issue happend on all browsers, I guess that it might be related with your video card--hardware device, if so, it's recommended to take this pc to a local shop to repair it.

  • Internet Explorer 11 "Enterprise Mode" do not work or do not work correctly!

    Dear community,
    Since yesterday we test the Feature "Enterprise Mode" for "Internet Explorer 11". However, we have many problems
    with this Feature. We have configured it as described by officially instruction by MS, but it does not work
    properly. Here is what we have done exactly to test this Feature:
    In Registry Key " HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main \ Enterprise Mode " we have created the Entry " Site List " and create the string " Enable" . In the
    String "Enable" we have added no value . 
    In Case of String "Site List" , we have specified the path to the XML file , as value of this String.
    The XML file was created with the Site List Manager from Microsoft
    And now, we regocnized following Problems:
    The "Enterprise Mode" ist only "active", if the User(!) check "Enterprise Mode" under "Tools"...!
    The site list is seemingly ignored, although in the Registry "currentversion" is pulled correctly, everytime we change
    the XML File. So we think "SiteList" is configured well.
    On one of our test computer freezes Internet Explorer 11 , if you try to hook the corporate mode
    In Summary, it seems to be configured properly but it even do not work or not work correctly.
    Our goal would be:
    Enterprise Mode + access to the Site List by IE11 should be "on" by Default!
    Entrys of sitelist.XML should be filtered and shown in "Enterprise Mode" or/and the right "DocMode", as configured.
    The user should have no chance  to check on or off the"enterprise mode"
    We use "Windows 7" on all our Clients, as test Clients are also running the same operating System...
    Please reply
    Thank you very much
    Ps: Please do not be angry if pronunciation or grammar do not fit well. English is not my nature language (my nature language is german)

    According to your description, seems the end-users can manually turn on\off the enterprise mode, If you don''t want this, you can disable the option.
    Computer(User) Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer\Let users turn on and use Enterprise Mode from the Tools menu option
    Disable this option, user will not have "Enterprise Mode" under "Tools", after that, please run gpupdate /force to update the policy, and get "Use the Enterprise Mode IE website list" applied again in the target system.
    After that, the enterprise mode website list get applied again, and user don't have an option to disable it.

  • My mac connects to the Internet fine, but Sarfari, chrome, and Firefox will not work. Nor will programs that connect to the internet

    This problem has been going on for a few days. my computer connects to the internet fine and runs fine, but none of my Internet browsers will work. I have deleted all my history, cache, cookies etc. For all browsers. I have also made sure that i have no proxies on and that no firewall is blocking my Internet. I have ran virus scans to look for malware and nothing comes up... I'm very confused.
    For chrome I get errors like "err_socket_not_connected", "err_connection_closed", and "err_empty_response"
    for safari it just says "safari can't open the page because safari can't establish a secure connection to the server"
    please help me if you know anything! Thank you in advanced

  • CD-ROM`s are not working on windows 8 (Boot Camp)

    I have installed Windows 8 in my MacBook Pro (2011) And it works fine. I updated my boot camp drivers today and now sound and brightness works great But i have one problem, im trying to install my pc game to windows 8, but the disc wont appear anywhere on w8.

    Did you check Control Panel>Device Manager  ?
    Open up the DVD/CD-ROM Drives and see if your drive is even listed.
    If it is try updating the drivers.
    If not Run Action>Scan for Hardware Changes and see if Windows finds the Drive.
