I checked this thread on Google but this far, I still cannot see any web page on Chrome. I am under Spybot residence and have Microsoft Security Essentials running. I double checked to see if everything is working properly and it seems so.
I still work with Win XP on a Toshiba Tecra. The message that I had, looks the same as many are having it:
Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error.
I have to say that I can work normally with Firefox and Internet Explorer.
Please, is there anything else that worked for you beyond the process to disable proxy settings on your computer?
