Monday, January 26, 2009 5:54 PMHello all,
I've found that i am having complete failure with HTTP access to things in anything other than my browsers, and my IM client. IE, Flock and Digsby all work OK.
But anything else that uses HTTP seems to fail, for example:
- Connecting Visual Studio to an FPSE extended site
- Showing images in html emails in Outlook
- Desktop Gadgets that connect to http services online (e.g. weather, stocks, etc.)
I have tried completely disabling Windows Firewall, with no luck.
I have this problem when connecting both to my home and work networks.
Thanks in advance; CheerZ!

Go to control panel, internet, connections tab, LAN settings and disable Automatic config(s).

How does that setting default, do you know? I know I hadn't changed it, so I'm just baffled that it was set.
Thanks for the perfect idea!!!!! :)

Crazy stuff! LOL
Very glad to have it working again!!
All in all, i gotta say i am LOVING 7, for any MS guys who may be reading!
You've hit the head square on the nail with this OS!
