C:\Documents and Settings\Tim>cabal update
Downloading the latest package list from hackage.haskell.org
Warning: http error: Network.Browser.request: Error raised ErrorParse

Issue is present on a windows xp machine with fresh install of the latest haskell platform. Remains present when cabal install is replaced with the latest version:

C:\Documents and Settings\Tim>cabal --version
cabal-install version 1.18.0.2
using version 1.18.1 of the Cabal library

This computer has no issues accessing the internet though any other software:

C:\Documents and Settings\Tim>ping google.com

Please re-open if this is still an issue with cabal-install-1.22.
