I canít open or load any web pages from Microsoft/msn;

Iíve tried it from Google chrome, IE and IE8,
I can get windows live messenger up but canít access my Emails from it (I have to use a different link and re-sign in) I assume its all part of the same problem,

Iíve run Norton and even downloaded a free virus checker, but nothing was found except for few cookies

Has anyone else heard of this problem or any solutions to sorting it out?

Cheers in advance

Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools/Internet Options, then the Connections tab and finally to LAN Settings button. The check box for use a proxy sever ... should not be checked.
You can also do a nslookup from a command prompt to find the IP address of the site your are trying to reach. Armed with the IP address type or paste it into IE address bar. That will verfiy DNS is working.
