This is a Vista Home machine and I thought Norton may have blocked web browsing apps so I uninstalled it with the Norton removal tool. Windows firewall is off and I am getting a valid ip address. Pinging google.com successfully resolves the address and I receive responses. I have also tried reinstalling IE8 but still no luck. Any ideas?

Is it possible that your browser is set to use a proxy and you have no proxy server running?

A simple restart has solved the issue. I tried all of the other suggestions previously and restarted multiple times but when I used the norton removal tool before posting, I didnt restart the computer after the removal tool was finished(nor did it prompt me to restart). Although it is working, I did previously try Google Chrome with no luck and verified there were no proxy settings. ipconfig commands didnt work earlier either so I think it came down to Norton blocking everything.

Thanks for the suggestions.
