    is not set up to establish a connection on port "world wide web service (HTTP)" with this computer

    I am not able to open one website and if I click to diagnose the issue then I get "is not set up to establish a connection on port" and "world wide web service (HTTP)" with this computer" also comes up. I am able to open all other websites. If I am trying to ping the web address in Command Prompt then it will come back fine but still it will not open in Internet Explorer 7. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Thanks

    The problem that you are facing can occur because the file signatures for the core Windows Internet Explorer 7 files may be changed when the update is installed. If a third-party security program is installed on the computer, the security suite programs may not have the correct updates to recognize the updated IE files and may block Internet Explorer from accessing the Internet.
