Error 102 when trying to connect to google chrome

Google chrome gives me this error:
Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error.

Firefox gives me this error:
Failed to connect. The connection was refused when attempting to contact

IE gives me this error:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
There might be a typing error in the address.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.
