Can ping, tracert, nslookup, but can't browse

September 17, 2010 at 04:40:40
Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, 4 GB Ram
After removing malware/spyware, I cannot browse the Internet using any browser, but can connect to wireless network to update Windows updates and Norton Security. I am able to ping, tracert, nslookup works, but can't browse using any browser - tried IE, Firefox, Safari, Chrome. Tried renaming hosts file, flushing cache, everything I can think of. Everything scans clean now using Malware Bytes, Norton Internet Security, and Ad-Aware. I can also get to Google by typing the IP address in the address bar of any browser.

Have you checked, whether there is a proxy configured in your browsers settings?
It shouldn't, it should connect directly.

The original poster should always write the last response !!!

I have checked the browser proxy settings and it is set for automatically detect, but I have also tried with nothing checked off in these settings. Neither works! I am bringing the laptop in to work this morning to see if I can connect with a different wireless connection. By the way, I have also tried connecting using an ethernet connection - same result.

What was the result in taking your laptop to work?

Can you get to any other website using IP or just google?

It didn't work with my wireless at work either. Right now, I am trying a repair reinstall of Windows 7, hoping not to lose any of my user settings, etc. I'll repost if this works or doesn't work.
Thanks for your reply.

Well, after a few hours spent doing the repair installation of Windows 7 -- success! That was the only solution for my problem. Thanks everyone who made suggestions. I really appreciate your efforts.
