Utorrent and skype working, browser not!?

Specs: Windows 7 64 bit, i3 Intel
I have a small 2 PC home wireless network with Internet. On the one PC, Internet works, on the other it doesnt (but on the one the only problem is that the browser doesnt work - skype and uttorent works fine.) I suspect a proxy problem, but have no idea whatsoever where to start looking. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance!

1. Load your computer in safe mode with networking. Click Start, click Shut down, click Restart, click OK. During your computer starting process press F8 key on your keyboard multiple times until you see Windows Advanced Option menu, then select Safe mode with networking from the list.

2. Open Internet explorer, click Tools and select Internet Options. Select "Connections".

3. Click LAN settings, if a "Use a proxy server for your LAN" is checked, uncheck it and press OK.

Thanks for the feedback! I have tried these steps and the box was unchecked.

I have done a diagnostic test and the report says: 'Windows cant communicate with primary DNS server. '

I mainly use firefox anyway, but I think there may be a problem beyond browser settings.
