How come my computer will not let any program besides Internet Explorer access the Internet?

by on August 18, 2010

Q: I bought my sister World of warcraft so she can play with me while shes away at college but her laptop wont let any programs access the internet on her computer other then Internet explorer. we have tried everything. (turned off firewall, set firewall to accept certain programs, uninstalled virus programs, installed a different virus programs and found no viruses)

She has less then a week before she leaves and I want to get her online today!

  1.  

    In Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings.

    Is anything checked or filled out on this screen?

    Look in the ‘Advanced’ section too.
