Nothing but browsers can access the internet

Specs: Windows 7
I live on residence at college. I started having internet problems (slow, choppy, cutting out) that eventually stopped a few days ago. Then recently (yesterday) The internet stopped working for everything but my browsers and Norton Internet Security. Steam, DC++, even Adobe updater can't connect.
I have booted in safe mode (with networking) and had the same problem.
