Computer cannot get out to the internet. I would list hardware, but all three machines are different, laptop, desktop, dell, hp, lenovo, etc...
IE comes back with a DNS problem whenever a web page is accessed. seems like its a DNS problem, but pinging www.google.com goes through, so there must be something activley resolving the dns. No programs can access internet for updates or for program functions, except email can be received, not sent.
Tried everything, all the ipconfig options, winsockfix, new NIC etc.... Keep in mind all three of these machines were connected to routers where there were no other problems on the other machines on the network. Ran smitfraudfix and combofix, and came back with nothing infecting the machine as far as their scope goes.
So after trying this all for hours at the customers place, he finally decided to try it in safe mode with networkng, and it worked as if there was no problem. When msconfig was looked at to see the startup items and what could have been causing it, nothing peculiar stood out.
So any thoughts, i personally think its a new virus or spyware that is not on the def. list yet. So aside from a reinstall, what other things could this be? do i have to change msconfig one line at a time and reboot X amount of times to isolate it? HELP PLEASE!
