Sometimes certain virus can hijack your browsers so that you can't access web pages although internet is working fine. They most commonly do this by editing the proxy server settings of your browser. Using internet Exploret, Go to Tools - Internet Options - Connections - Lan Settings and make sure 'Use a proxy server' option is unticked. Restart your browser and try a website

In Firefox

Make sure Use System Proxy settings option is ticked as apposed to manual entry
