Bizarre connection issue

I can connect to the internet using HTTPS and FTP (can both get and put)  but cannot connect using HTTP
I can ping say "community.plus.net" and get a response.
Diagnostic error reads
Quote
Windows cannot connect to the Internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP, This is probably caused by firewall settings on your computer
Check the firewall settings for HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443), and FTP(21)
You may need to contact your ISP…..or firewall manufacturer

But other PC works fine so not ISP.
OS = XP, firewall = MS.
I've reset the firewall setting to default
any ideas?
