Problem with Get Books

If I do a search on any book or author I get the message - couldn't find any books matching your query.
Trying to download a newspaper I get the message - failed to get news, conversion error.
My internet is connected. I can pick a store and a window will open in that store.
I am using internet explorer.

Did you tick search sources that might have the books?
Searching Baen (Webscriptions) for Bambi is not going to result in a Match (Even if you use IE ) New York Times best sellers are not going to be at Project Gutenberg.

No other ideas. It works for me. (I use Firefox, but Calibre only uses the Proxy info set in IE)
Maybe your firewall is blocking calibre.exe
