Default microsoft internet explorer cannot find server

my internet explorer cannot find the server which is very frustrating as i
cannot use windows update etc, i have been able to connect to the internet
using firefox (but this runs very slowly) which is how i can be on here
posting......

using the Diagnose Connection Problems..." i get this message - windows
cannot connect to the internet using HTTP,HTTPS, or FTP. this is probably
caused by firwall settings on this computer.

check the firewall settings for the HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443) and FTP
port (21)

not really sure what all that means as the firewall on here says all is ok
and it is windows firewall im using....

hopefully someone can shed some light on the subject and help me out as its
very frustrating usin firefox when its running slow cheers

After removing all malware, try these:

Open Internet Options, Connections tab, click "Lan Settings" button,
deselect all.

Flush DNS

Click Start, Run, type CMD and click the [OK] button. Type each of the
following:

IPConfig /FlushDNS [Press Enter key]
ipconfig /release [Press Enter key]
ipconfig /renew [Press Enter key]
ipconfig /registerdns [Press Enter key]

NETSH

Click Start, Run, type CMD and click the [OK] button. Type the following:

netsh winsock reset

Press Enter key

Restart the system

I had the same problem last night with the Win32/nuquel.E & Bankerfox.A.
I managed to download Malware Bytes onto a thumb drive and run it on the
infected computer. The virus is clean but now I can not access the
internet at all from that computer.

When I attempt to access the internet, I get "Internet Explorer cannot
display the webpage". (IE 8) I diagnose connection problems and get the
exact same message..."Check the firewall settings for the HTTP port
(80), HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)".

Below are my two Malware Bytes logfiles

#1:
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.44
Database version: 3510
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 (Safe Mode)
Internet Explorer 8.0.6001.18702

Quarantined and deleted successfully.


I am posting this on several forums, as I need to get this computer up
and running as quickly as possible. . I have tried all the fixes in this
thread, as well as on several other forums and not one has worked.
(Several even stated to remove my antivirus software, which I also
did...it was AVG 8.5). I am completely bamboozled.
Thank you!!
