Issue: All networking seems to work except connecting via a browser to a website (using both IE and FF for testing)


Scanned with Malwarebytes' Antimalware and Avira Antivirus - both report no issues.
The Laptop is connected via a cable to my router and all my other computers do not have this issue.

I can ping a website and I do get name resolution ("Ping yahoo.com" & I get 4 replies).

LAN settings are set to Automatically Detect and there is no Proxy server set up or running.

Bonjour service has been uninstalled.

DHCP works fine and PC gets a valid IP Address, SM and Gateway (my router)

TCP/IP has been reset via NETSH INT IP RESET and winsockets have been reset via NETSH WINSOCK RESET.

Firewall has bee reset to defaults via the gui and then turned off. I've also reset the firewall via NETSH FIREWALL RESET.

I can't get a webpage to display via HTTP or HTTPS.

I have flushed both the ARP and DNS caches.

Rebooted between all of the above steps

I have pulled out my last hair.

Any help or ideas is greatly appreciated.
