Only Skype and Google search are opening. No other website.

Hey guys, I am stuck here. I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit operating system. A few hours ago, my internet has started acting funny. I was browsing as usual on Google Chrome and suddenly I started getting Error 118: operation timed out. Surprisingly, gmail, twitter, facebook, and the search bar work just fine. I can search and get results but cannot open the websites. Even Skype seems to work. Other computers do not seem to have this problem. I tried all the suggestions on the internet (using my phone browser to do this, connected to same wireless network, works fine). I tried the ipconfig/flushdns and netsh interface ip commands. Even tried system restore. Triple checked for malwares and viruses. Disabled antivirus and firewalls. Nothing seems to work. What shall I do. I know its not the router issue, 3 other laptops on the same network and same OS work fine. Please help.
UPDATE: For some inexplicable reason, everything has started working back to how it was..not sure if to mark this as solved or not...r
UPDATE: nope, it worked for 5 minutes and stopped working again.
UPDATE : And its back again...

The command is netstat_-an, without the underscore, it's a space.
