Windows 7: Browsers not working, internet connection is fine

Browsers not working, internet connection is fine

This problem just started today. I was browsing just fine early this afternoon but all of a sudden i couldn't connect to any websites at all. I've tried all my other browsers too. IE, Firefox, Chrome but none of them are working. The only site i was able to open is this forum. I know my internet connection is fine because utorrent is working. Any ideas? Thanks.

Going to suggest you clear DNS cache

Try clearing your DNS cache

Open an advanced command prompt

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator

Type in the following, followed by enter for each

ipconfig /flushdns

Enter

ipconfig /release

Enter

ipconfig /renew

Enter


See if that helps.



If not, try the IE 64 bit and see if that works fine

Start> All Programs> Internet Explorer (64 bit)

If the 64 bit works, then try this

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator

Type in the following, followed by enter

netsh winsock reset

Enter

Restart PC

Hopefully that will fix it

I had exactly the same problem brand new machines all working fine last week, I installed Yahoo messenger on all of them, and 4 out of the 6 pc's browers stopped working, Google, I.E 9 & Firefox !!
I have removed Yahoo messenger from all of the pc's and they are working fine.....

I hope this helps you and fingers crossed my fix stays fixed
