Try changing your DNS with:
Open DNS:
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220
or
Google DNS
8.8.8.8
8.8.8.4

stalker,

thank you, i tried 8.8.4.4 in the wireless connection properties preferred dns box, but it didnt make a difference

previously i had my default router gateway address in there.

it is always one site in particular that doesnt work....windowsupdate.microsoft.com...

ive heard its common problem, and never found posted resolutions...

i also tried flushing dns cache, and ipconfig /renew

i also reconfigured router to manual dns with 8888, 8844, and domain name= google.com???, anyway it didnt make a difference

i also closed AV & windows firewall...

tracert timed out and ping numeric address timed out...

Try to delete cookies on your browser,delete the cache. Also give a try this:
Go to C:/Windows/system32/drivers/etc. There is a file called hosts. Open it with Notepad / Notepad++ and make a screenshoot of it,and post the picture here. Maybe some sites are blocked by windows.

I'd try a spyware scan if you haven't done that already. SUPERAntiSpyware is a good one.

If still no luck, give Firefox a shot and see if that makes a difference. If it does we'll know the problem lies with IE and not your Network settings in general.

What happens when you try to run Windows Update from Control Panel?

Have you run a spyware check? Besides the one I mentioned before, a go-round with Malwarebytes would be a good idea.
