1 solution to: only skype and google works. Can't visit urls

Specs: Windows 7
I know allot of people are having this same problem. So I thought that it wouldn't hurt with a thread where I could share a possible solution to the problem which helped me.

My problem was: only skype and google works. Couldn't visit urls

(and I was able to search on google but not visit any urls)

After trying out all the tips I could find on how to fix it (DNS reset, ping check, manually inputting ips, etc..), I came across this solution which worked for me:

1. Uninstalled my network adapter
2. restart computer
3. (still no connection)
4. turned OFF windows firewall
5. Regular internet connection returned
6. turned ON windows firewall
7. Still have regular internet connection

Hope this helps, as I was going mad with frustration for several hours :)

how check ping? with name or winh IP? if name don't work, and IP does, this id DNS problem (Your or ISPs). Look for fake proxy (internet options; connections; LAN settings; Proxy server).

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
ping DNS1
ping DNS2
ping (some IP)
ping (some name like www.microsoft.com)
tracert (some IP)
tracert (some name like www.microsoft.com)
you will see where is the problem.
