Trouble with specific website

I have a network with a sonicwall as the gateway, with all security services (now) disabled. One computer is having trouble getting to facebook.com, while all the rest are fine.

I'm able to ping facebook.com from the problem PC just fine. However, when loading facebook.com (or any of its IPs) in IE8, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, I'm sent to an error page (differs for every browser). I've done a full virus scan with Symantec and Malwarebytes, the PC comes up clean. I've also tried loading up facebook via https, no luck. I'm able to get to facebook on other PCs in the network with no trouble whatsoever, so it doesn't look to be a gateway problem.

Any pointers on this?

Edit/additions: Windows firewall is disabled. I'm able to get to every other website just fine on the problem PC.

what about the IP address? is your IP static? There may be a rule.

Try change your IP to use one of the other PC's IP addresses
Try a different user account....
Is there an acl on the sonicwall for facebook?

There was a rule somehow set for the dynamic IP the PC was getting. I removed the rule and all of a sudden the PC is able to browse to facebook.

What is the errorpage you get? Is it from the sonicwall? What does it say?
Open Internet Explorer/Tools/Internet Options. Select Connections Tab then select Lan settings. Uncheck both boxes under "Proxy Server"
