Thanks for sharing.
I agree that from my experience here the most common cause for Origin related issues are security programs that aren't properly set up, as opposed to the actual viruses.

[Moderator Edit] For everyone with this issue, try this version of the Origin installer.
(Run the "OriginSetup.exe" as Administrator > right click the "OriginSetup.exe" > run as Admin)
If that version also don't works look at the troubleshooting steps in this thread.
I hope this work-around helps. I have traced the problem(on my machine anyway) to a Windows networking issue. Sharing my internet connection seems to have fooled Origin into working, here's how:
Control Panel >
Network and Sharing Centre >
Change Adapter Settings >
Click on "Local Area Connection"(Blackberry Device or Android or whatever you're using) >
On the top right, click "Change settings of this connection >
Click on "Sharing" tab > Click "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection" >
Select your LAN connection from the drop-down menu. >
Click "OK" >
Hope this helps!

Me too...there is something wrong with my proxy server for IE, too, and nothing I seem to do will fix it.
I think it's something on their side cause internet is working for everything else. Origin is the only thing i cant connect to. I have windows 10
