1) Try to decrease MTU number to 1492 or lower. Search for special programs for this.
2) Your computer blocks 80 port
3) it may be DNS problem (check DNS and DHCP services running in Administration->Services), try to open http://74.125.232.83/ in IE (it's google site)

I Would Suggest You Uninstall All Browsers, Reboot Your Server And Then Re-install IE Only.

There's a pretty good chance you have a virus

Download, install, update, and run Malwarebytes

It can't be a virus since there is a ping to the sites
