We have one of our workstations running Windows XP Pro SP3.  As of today we can no longer browse the internet using IE, we keep getting "Page Cannot Be Displayed".  I am able to ping an external address (4.2.2.2) and also an external DNS (Yahoo.com) without error.  We scanned for viruses but none appeared.  We cant use Firefox because the Internet based software we are running cannot be used with firefox.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

You need to check your DNS records and Proxy settings

So you an browse the internet with Firefox though?

DO you use a proxy?  have you checked internet settings to see if one is configured?  

Scanned for malware?  Give malwrebytes and combofix a run.

Tried resetting tcp?

does this problem occur for other use accounts on your workstation?

Try going to http://173.194.36.104
This should load up google.  If so then it's DNS issue.

The user had checked on the proxy setting.  Once we cleared it, the system worked.  Thanks
