Chrome displaying Error 102. What can I do?

I am not a heavy user of Google Chrome. Despite that, I still use it specially when I need to manage the same account at the same time. Everything was working perfectly until yesterday that I noticed I couldn't load any web page on Chrome.

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?

Technology Proves to Be Distracting for Some

While technology enhances the learning experience and broadens the horizons of students, it could also prove to be distracting for some.

I know the title of this post may seem inappropriate considering the times we live in. Our world would come to a standstill without technology, so why are we even asking the question if it would be more of hindrance than help in a classroom? The fact is that technology is good when used in the right way, but when you don’t know how to use it or if you use it for the wrong purposes, then it is more a destructive weapon than a constructive tool.
