Control Panel > Windows Firewall; then click on, "Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall". You should be able to fix it from there.

Please have Windows Firewall back on and set the rules appropriately. Also, please show errors or any message that might be helpful.

Make sure that your web browsers are set to automatically detect proxy settings.
