IE 7 & 8 give me error message for ALL sites " Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" but all other browsers (ffox, chrome) work RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • IE 7 & 8  (after I upgraded) give me  the following error message for ALL pages   " Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" but all other browsers (ffox, chrome) work perfectly. 

    When I dignose the problem on the error page, using Network diagnostics for Windows XP I get the following:

    Network Diagnostics for Windows XPLast diagnostic run time: 08/15/09 22:52:40 HTTP, HTTPS, FTP Diagnostic
    HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity
    info HTTP: Successfully connected to www.microsoft.com.
    info FTP (Passive): Successfully connected to ftp.microsoft.com.
    info HTTPS: Successfully connected to www.microsoft.com.

     

    Additionally:
    I am trying to work with turbotax, and it seems to be hardcoded to use only IE browser for any request.  Consequently I cant get any query since all the urls use IE.

    I am typing this in Firefox.  As you see, my internet conectivity itself is not a problem
    I have followed all the diagnostic paths I could find, but most dealt with connectivity issues, rether than IE specific.
    I am runnigg windows xp sp3
