It could be that the systems are infected so to clean and to check if you system is clean do following:

Run malwarebytes in Safe Mode with Networking and update it before running a full system scan:

Then try HitManpro to make sure anything which might be left behind is clean:
32bit

64bit
http://dl.surfright.nl/HitmanPro35_x64.exe

What OS are you using for browsing?
Do you have any proxy which filters the traffic?

TO me it seems like the DNS issue, try google DNS servers
8.8.8.8 and/or 8.8.4.4 and check if you are able to browse the websites
