    Hi,

    I keep receiving HTTP 400 errors when using IE7 and Firefox. A broadband connection is established as I can ping websites.

    Has anyone else experienced similar problems and managed to resolve the problem?

    There seems very little information on the web specifically on this problem.

    Thanks.

    A cached page that no longer exists, you could be looking at a website as the webmaster happens to be updating it?

    Do you delete cookies and cached pages before exiting the browser?

    Try changing your DNS servers.

    Open DNS is supposed to be reliable from what i have heard..

    Hi,

    Just in case anyone else comes across this problem, I did manage to solve it eventually

    Here is the sequence of events. In Safe Mode I was able to access the internet without the HTTP 400 errors. I then made a note of all the services that were running. Booted back into Windows normally, and then one by one stopped all the services that were not running in Safe Mode. When I stopped Symantec Network Proxy, the browser worked normally without any errors.

    Hope this may be of assistance to someone in the future.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    And people wonder why some of us are not impressed by Symantec? :p
