XPSP3 dell system with no http connection. Has https: and will ping at the cmd but no web or mail.
I did winsockxpfix twice I also have reinstalled the netcard and still no good. Does have internet in safe mode though. Any Ideas?   I do feel this is a software bug in windows do to the fact I can ping a web site and open shared folder from other desltop and they are talking. I can not restore as I get a computer can not restore to a earlier time after it goes through all the steps of doing it. I am totally baffled with this system as usually the winsockfix will fix a problem of this type. I feel ok with the regedit area but not sure what values to change.  One other thing to add I believe there was a Satalite software on this machine as well STARBAND which has been removed and all shows in the card in windows network,file/printer sharing tcp/ip protocals. It was unistall correctly a week before this started though.
Thank you in advance for any ideas

If some windows updates were applied just prior to this happening, see if removing update 958644 and rebooting helps.
i.e. Add/Remove Programs, check Show Updates, scroll to the bottom and look for Security Update for Windows XP (KB958644)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I would suggest temporarily uninstalling AVG and see what happens.
