Can ping but can not browse


I have Compaq Presario F700 Laptop ( OS :Vista Home. I have been using using it for over a year now without any problems until recently.

Since last 2 weeks I have not been able to access any website using any browser. Surprisingly , my laptop shows connected to Internet . I can use MSN , Yahoo ,Gtalk for chatting without any problem. However, can not browse any website .

Initially , I was using Chrome , it stopped working so I switched to IE 7.0 , after few days IE 7.0 stopped working so I switched to Mozzila . It worked for 2/3 dayts , after that there is not browsing at all . I have tried so far..
1)uninstalling / installing both browsers except IE 7.0
2)netsh winsock reset
3)netsh int ip reset

but to no avail .

Can someone guide me to crack this issue.

Re: Can ping but can not browse

I'm not going to have a solution for you I don't think, but let's rule out a few things for others who may reply:

Your symptoms might result from a virus. Have you run a virus scan with your anti-virus software definitions being current?

Do you have or can you borrow another computer to try browsing with from your location using your existing cables and equipment?

If that 2nd computer can't, then:

Reboot your modem (assuming you have a broadband connection) and your router if you have one.

Call your ISP's tech support, and see if they can connect from their end and check out the modem.

Check out the TIME (And region) on your computer.
