Cannot browse web, network connection is fine..

Hello there,

I have ended up with a rather strange issue
I can not browse web pages, outlook, skype, lync etc is working fine on PC.

What i tried so far:
Turning off proxy settings in broswers
Flushed DNS
Changing DNS to OpenDNS
Firefox and explorer browsers

The only thing that is working is GOOGLE search in both explorer and firefox how ever no links and no other webpages is working, really really strange and annoying. What might this be?

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Do the browsers work in the safe mode with networking?

Do the proxy settings stay turned off?

Welcome Chriis to the forum.

Could you list all your security programs and all your tune-up, clean up programs you use?

Your system specs would also help us help you. These two tutorials will help you.

As you may know, there are fewer things running in while in the safe mode.

If you follow these steps...
Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup can cause fewer things to run in the normal mode.

Maybe those steps can help you find the app or apps that is causing this weird issue for you.

What anti virus and firewall do you use?

Does the browsers proxy settings change when in normal mode?
