I have never seen this kind of behavior before.

This morning I start to get this message on all the computers when try to access internet using internet explore. If I use Google Chrome, The internet works fine. Same machine>>Internet explorer works fine if I switch to a different internet connection.

The network where Internet Explorer stop working, I have a firewall/DNS/proxy. I removed the proxy by assigning the IP manually and open all the port on firewall but this doesn't let Internet Explorer working and same machine Google Chrome is working fine.

I am not sure what and where to look at this point. I have update/scan all the virus already.

Let me know if you need any more info to suggest or recommend something.

raza--What version of IE are you using?
raza--Try using IE with no add-ons. From a command prompt run iexplore.exe  -extoff
If that works and you may want to re-enable each add-on separately and see which is causing the problem.  (IE Tools|Manage Add-ons|Enable or Disable Add-ons)
However, you may also have malware in the system.

I was having this problem with all the PCs.

This came out to be proxy problem.

I am not sure why when I check earlier it was working same way with manual IP. later when I try to go over everything again and set the IP manually then thing start to make sense.
