PROBLEM CONNECTING TO INTERNET WITH INTERNET EXPLORER WITH MESSAGE; The device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not set up to accept connections on port “The World Wide Web service (HTTP)”

If you’ve found yourself in a bind and have a
PROBLEM CONNECTING TO INTERNET WITH INTERNET EXPLORER WITH MESSAGE; The device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not set up to accept connections on port “The World Wide Web service (HTTP)” read on my friend there is a cure!

I Had a major issue with IE (Internet Explorer) today.
FINALLY found the answer to my problem.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my new laptop and usually use Firefox (I think much better anyway)
but had to use IE for something and found that it wouldn’t connect to the internet and kept
diagnosing the problem and receiving this message of problem detected:

“The device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not set up to accept connections on port “The World Wide Web service (HTTP)”.

I can’t remember where I found it now, but found a forum with some helpful people who had gone through same thing
and I wish I could thank them here, they are LIFESAVERS!!!!!

Anyway, its easy to fix the problem…

Just open IE, go to TOOLS,
then INTERNET OPTIONS,
ADVANCED TAB,
& CLICK RESET INTERNET EXPLORER SETTINGS

restart the program and WALLA!
Got my IE working!

THANK GOD!!!
