I've identified you as a prolific spammer but for the moment I'll treat this as a genuine query.

I think IE has generally been superseded by Edge but check to see if IE will connect in Safe Mode with Networking.

As Palemoon works then these cmds may not resolve, but you could try them anyway.

Open either a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and enter these cmds -

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /registerdns

shutdown /r /t 00

Then see what things are like after the reboot.
