Connected to Internet but IE cannot connect

Hello everybody.
I have a stable connection to Internet. I can connect using Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Steam and I can play games online BUT I cannot connect using Internet Explorer, and League of Legends, also I can't use Windows Update. What could be my problem?

Thank you.

Try Download Complete Internet Repair - MajorGeeks, check all options. Restart after it is finished just in case.

Edit: Hold on with Complete Internet Repair for now, try
Safe Mode with Networking and see if IE works.
Try another user account - User Account - Create
Try a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

If you fail after these, then run Complete Internet Repair with all options checked.
