If it can ping sites on the internet but not access them by name that would suggests a DNS issue, check the DNS setiings on the machine.

Hi JParra,

Lets start from the ground up.

ipconfig/all
ping gateway
nslookup www.google.com - does it resolve?
ping www.google.com does it fail?
tracert www.google.com - paste results please.

Ok,

It is not a DNS issue because the problem is not global.  The problem is not in Exchange becasue he is able to receive and send emails.  

After further digging, I found out that his browser settings were misconfigured (IE 7)
Here is what I did to correct his issue:
1. click on Tools
2. click on Internet Options
3. click on the Connections tab.
4. click on the LAN settings button
5. Check to see if the options to Automatically detect settings and Use a proxy server for your LAN are checked.  If they are checked, uncheck them.

After unchecking these options, he was able to connect to the internet.

Thank you both for your suggestions
