Verification Error

Okay I had no problems playing the demo but when I bought the game, I entered the verification code and clicked verify and in one second the pointer froze, my mouse appeared and a window popped up saying;

I Error: Internet: HTTPSendRequest()Failed[12029]

My firewall is down and internet is working so I’m not sure what’s wrong

ooops, figured out what was wrong. I have internet explorer blocked, due to viruses, and I just use firefox, unblocked it and it works great.
