Can PING, TRACERT, connect using RDP (Outside) but cannot open websites.

I have tried for hours to figure out what is going on to no avail. As I said I can ping any domain, run a complete tracert to google.com, and nslookup works but I cannot open any websites. I have:
- Connected 2 other computers to the same network: Works fine
- Reinstalled TCP/IP
- Repaced the NIC
- Ran repair of Windows XP
- Tried Firefox
- Booted in Safe Mode with Networking
-  And much more

I am unable to wipe and reload because my Windows XP Cd does not recognize the Intel 82801 SATA controller (any help here would help too)

Any ideas.

Thanks,

Jetalley

Download and run "WinSock XP Fix" may be this fixes the problem.

Home or work computer?  Home or work network?

If both answers are work, maybe there is a proxy or socks server you need to use.

It is a home computer and home network. The user works from home 100% of the time. We will try the Winsock XP Fix also.

Efficient way to get backups off site to Azure

This user guide provides instructions on how to deploy and configure both a StoneFly Scale Out NAS Enterprise Cloud Drive virtual machine and Veeam Cloud Connect in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

dynasis,

Does your "Much More" include scanning for virus and malware?

Can you Download and run Hijack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html
Copy/paste the log here so we can see it.

Yes it includes scanning for virus's etc. Yes I used HijackThis! Everything checked out clean. Everything looks normal.

P.S. WinsockfixXP did not work either.

Thanks

Booting into Safe Mode With Networking didn't work, huh?  Have you tried a repair/reinstall of XP?

Are you willing to copy us the log of hijackthis?  It may look clean, but perhaps you just overlooked something.

what kind of antivirus do you use?

You may want to install something like wireshark (http://www.wireshark.org) and do a packet capture.  This will show you if the data is leaving your computer.

I finally figured out that the MTU of the firewall was to high. Se this to 1460 and all is good.

Thanks for all the help.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
