Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

I have just installed SP2 and a couple of updates to my Windows 2003 server today and since these installations I cannot browse the internet on that box.
I thought initially it was the enhanced security but this doesn't seem to be the case.  However I disabled the enhanced security but it hasn't restored the browsing.

This happens in IE 8 and Firefox.

However I can ping any domain inside and outside of our network.

Any help to restore my browsing?

What error message is displayed when trying to access the internet? Are you trying multiple websites? Do you use a proxy? Is the local firewall allowing you to connect outbound to port 80? Can you open a command prompt and telnet to a website address on port 80 to check connectivity?

This is just browsing.
Yes trying multiple websites and all report the same.  

We don't use a proxy.
Local Firewall is disabled at present.

What happens when you telnet to a website from a command prompt? E.g. telnet www.google.com 80

Do you get a response? I assume DNS is fine? I'm Just trying to rule out other factors and narrow it down to definitely being the browsers.

Did you ever had a Symantec security Product on that machine? i had similar cases that were solved by execuiting the norton removal tool downloaded from symantec.com.

Telnet works fine, ultra quick in fact.

No never had Norton, we have Eset.  Which has just reported an error, I guess this could be connected.

Do you just use NOD32 or the Smart Security Suite? We've never experienced any issues with NOD32 on our servers here so far, fingers crossed.

NOD32 is working a treat.  But I seem to have a kernel issue on this server with it.  I wonder if the updates have caused it.

OK I have fixed it.  It seems that the updates had screwed up the Antivirus product.  I had to reboot the server in to safemode and use Eset removal tool to remove the AV, once done and reboot all is working.  I will now reinstall it and see if it works this time.

Thanks for all your assistance.
