Does this help?
Same error message in the SecureCRT SSH window
[LOCAL] : Unexpected SOCKS version encountered.

Chrome responds with
Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data.

I'm beginning to think that there is a problem with my laptop as others are using the exact same configuration and process as I am and it works for them.

BTW: I get the same errors when using Firefox and IE.
