OpenVpn limits Internet access

I'm logging into a OpenVpn network successfully and I'm able to access the company's web mail site and Svn repository.  But when I'm logged into OpenVpn, I'm unable to access any regular Internet sites outside of the company network.  The browser just hangs.  I'm using IE7 and a Windows XP SP3 operating system.  I am able to send and receive messages in my Outlook.

Other colleagues do not have this problem.  We all use the same .opvn configuration file:

dev          tap
proto        udp
remote       abc.xxx.com 11952
ca           ca.crt
cert         local.crt
key          local.key
tls-auth     tls.key
resolv-retry infinite
verb         5
comp-lzo     yes
tls-remote   "abc.xxx.com"

Does anyone know what might be wrong here?
