Firefox, Steam, Filezilla, Skype all work.
IE, Chrome, Evernote and others all dont.

Windows Network Diagnostic tool says:
Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings

Chrome Says:
Error 137 (net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error.

Its not a virus or malware, its likely because i removed registry keys related to old web filtering software.

In the Internet Options settings it is set to automatically detect settings and no proxy server is set.

Please help and thanks.

Have you ran an malware scanner to be sure you don't have any baddies on the computer? If not run malwarebytes ( link in my sig). :)
If I have replied to a topic and you reply and I haven't gotten back to you within 48 hours (2 days) then send me a P.M.
