We are experiencing a very frustrating problem at the moment and I hope that somebody knows the solution.  We have an office with 1 server, 5 PC's and 4 Macs.  None of us can view web pages in IE or Firefox.  However, the broadband connection is clearly working because email to our exchange box is not affected, and I can use terminal services to talk to the server from outside the office.  I can also pick up pop email.

Our virus software (NOD32) is not showing anything untoward.  Hijack this hasn't shown anything unexpected and I have changed the firewall, yet the problem has reappeared.  I have also double checked the DNS settings (as well as tried redirecting the DNS through another server) but this makes no difference.

Does anybody know of a virus or something similar that might cause this or have any other ideas?
