Firstly, if this is not the correct forum for this question please advise. Thanks to all for assistance.
For some reason IE7/IE8 has stopped displaying webpages.
I have 2 other laptops connected to my router that have no problems at all and the problem is only on one home computer. I have exhausted the Internet trying to find a solution for this problem but to no avail. I can ping www.google.com and I can display webpages within the browser using an IP address only. Also if I boot into safeboot everything works fine. Below are some of the things I have already tried: Flush DNS NETSH INT IP commands (i think it was called) where a text file was reset Uninstalled the network card Explicitly referenced other DNS servers from my network connection TCP/IP settings Tried Firefox (same problem) Start the browser with addon turned off Used MSCONFIG disabling all services and start items Run sigverif
Can someone please help with this problem? I will go crazy if I need to rebuild my machine because of this.
I read about a virus that basically redirected major websites to the local address. When you typed http://www.google.com, the system would try to pull up the webpage for 127.0.0.1 (and if you're running a web server, the local webpage would display.) The same thing with pinging by host name - it would just ping the local host.
When you pinged google, did the correct IP address show up, or some bogus one? Did you try doing a "ipconfig /displaydns" to see if it's the real IP address for google.com?
