Possibility that you have some sort of malware preventing your browsers from working?

Check your IE settings in the internet options - connections tab.

Re: Web browser not connecting, but ping works 80 80

Hi guys,
Sandman4040, please check that you aren't infected as JorgeM suggests. But first of all, please try telnetting to port 80 of any machine on the web. It should show you if it connects successfully. Just open cmd and type in telnet somehost 80 e.g telnet www.google.com 80. If it connects successfully, then as JorgeM suggests, you might be infected. Otherwise, it might be a http proxy configuration. Just open netsh again and go to the http option, then type reset proxy. Please note that you need to have administrator privileges for this to be successful, so run cmd as the admin. Good luck.
