Start with the basics

1) Welcome to BC :thumbsup:

2) Reset the Rcache. Go to Start then Run and type in cmd, press enter. Next type in ipconfig /flushDNS, and press enter. try your browser.

Are you on broadband, DSL, Cable, ISDN,??

I take it you have cleared your temp files and cookies? What ISP are you using? Did you have service and you lost it or are you trying to estblish a new connection?

Also what firewall are you using if any? Lately it is good to know what anti-virus is installed also as some do blocking of websites and may use LSP's to filter.

I had the exact same problem and it was a clash between Outpost firewall free and Kaspersky.
