Hi,

I am really new to this forum, mostly read alot here and learn, but now im stuck with a weird problem.

 

I have a windows 7 laptop, which will ping out, can do tracert, nslookup successfully.  I have 3 browsers installed, IE, Chrome and Firefox.

 

I cant seem to browse to any site, not even by ip.  I have checked:

 

Hosts file,

ip address set to static, then dynamic,

i tried to flushdns and pc hangs there like its doing something till it stops responding.

 

I went to services.msc to check dnsclient, its set to start automatically

 

I am not really sure what else to try.

 

Thanks in advance for any suggestions

 

Best Regards,

x81kilo

I don't know about the freezing problem, but I can tell you that all the browsers are controlled by "Internet Options" in the Control panel and you can have an internet connection as you do, but be unable to use any internet browsers, because of settings in "Internet Options".

Open Internet options and hit the "Connections" tab and make sure there is no proxy and/or dial up in there and check mark the top option to be on Automatic, hit OK, then try your internet browsers.

Interestingly enough, i found some other articles related to anti pup? or something like that and noted there was a similar program running, i booted into safe mode deleted the app, and fixed my hosts file to default. i am now getting sporadic access albeit slow as heck. i will keep testing on my end.

 

thank you for your support! I will definitely check the internet options in control panel

If the problem was caused by malware, as it often is, you could scan with Free Malwarebytes and free Superantispyware {careful to not accept trial versions),
