Vista will not allow applications to connect to internet. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows vista will not let any programs connect to the internet other than internet explorer.

    I have used "netsh winsock reset" and reset the security settings in %windir%. Still nothing. I have no virus scanning software or firewall beyond the basic windows firewall, I used to have norton, but it was outdated and I uninstalled it. Everything still worked fine after the uninstall. I have also made sure that windows firewall allowed access and even went so far to turn it off. Still nothing. I don't know what else to do lol.
