Web browsers do not work, but skype and teamspeak work

Hello there!

So this problem started yesterday afternoon. I didn't download anything, but suddenly I was unable to browse the web. I tried all the web browsers I have but no websites would load. But skype and teamspeak still work.

Any help?

Thanks.

Open IE, then click on Tools->Internet Options. From there, click on the Connections tab then the LAN settings button. Under "Proxy Server", make sure the checkbox labeled "Use a proxy server for your LAN" is UNCHECKED.

It is unchecked, it was before I opened it. It didn't work though.

Alright, this is really odd now. Internet explorer 64 bit and firefox 64 bit works, but chrome does not work.

I just had this problem and found a fix, uninstall your network adapter via device manager, restart your pc and let the network adapter install itself or install from driver CD
