    Unsure

    IE cannot connect to the Internet yet FF works just fine.

    I've Googled around for a bit but cannot find a working solution.

    Windows Live Messenger will not connect either. It gives me the error code: 80048820

    Again, I've Googled that and get different fixes all over the place but nothing seems to work. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I think I had a problem like this once but I dont remember what I did. I think it just started working by itself the next day or I think there was something wrong with my firewall. Just double check your firewall first and make sure its not blocking it.

    I also found this, try it out:

    1. In Internet Explorer, clear the Check for Server certificate revocation (requires restart) check box. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Start Internet Explorer.
    2. Click on the Tools menu, then click Internet Options in the pull down menu.
    3. Click on the Advanced tab.
    4. Under “Security” section tree, clear the Check for server certificate revocation (requires restart) check box.
    5. Click OK button.
    6. Exit Internet Explorer.
    7. Sign in to Windows Live Messenger again.


    If that doesn't work try this link and see if it helps:

    I went through all those steps and nothing worked.

    Went to the link you provided and went through those steps one at a time, testing after each step. Something in step 5 did the trick and both are now working. Well done. Thanks.
