Hello experts!
I've got a problem with my browser. It doesn't open any page. I tried using another browser but it displays blank page too.

I checked for malwares and spywares using my AVG, but it comes with no result.

What is the problem?? How to fix it ?

Ping works perfectly. Ping is about 50 so it's okey.

Only browsers are not working. MSN and skype works normally, but there are some problems with the browser

Couple of things, first open the browser and clear all of the browser history files.  Make sure you clear all forms and passwords as well.  Second, make sure all of you addons are disabled (you can turn them back on later), and clear all of your ssl settings.

Second, I'd check the host file (c:\windows\drivers\system32\hosts) to make sure there are no misdirected entries.  You might just try renaming it and going from there.

Lastly, you mentioned that you can "ping" google.  Try putting in the address in your pwowser http:\\ 74.125.157.147, and see if it comes up.  If it does, then we have a dns issue (check your dns server settings under network), if it doesn't then we have a browser issue that we will have to trouble shoot further.

Hope this helps.

Check that there are no proxy settings configured, malware often does this - under LAN settings which is on the Connections tab of Tools / Internet options.

If one of the boxes is checked that may be your problem.
