Windows 7: Can ping router, can't use it

Can ping router, can't use it

I just installed Windows 7 on a blank hard drive. When I did, the internet immediately worked. Then, all yesterday, I moved many of my files from my old hard drive to my new one. Now I can no longer connect to the internet. I can ping my router and various websites. And, going into my router setup, my router sees my PC and says everything is working fine. Still, I cannot use the internet (on this computer. My other computers, like the one I'm using, are working just fine).

I'm assuming this is a driver problem since I'm using a blank hard drive. Although it's weird that everything worked a-okay yesterday.

Help?

Thanks!

It is not an HD driver problem. what are you using for networking "homegroup" or workgroup?

If you can ping websites then the network connection is working. What anti virus and what firewall?
