OK this is a tough one....Windows 7 64 Bit on domain, set up a new user on it an then discovered that the PC could not get to the internet. I can get to the Intranet, to the network drives and install software without a problem. I can get to the inernet links on the intranet page (dictionary.com, Reference.com) I can get to microsoft.com and nothing else. So I reloaded the OS and the results are the same.

I ended up putting in a static address on the PC and that resolved the problem. Today I benched another PC and on boot it was using the same address and suffered the same problems. So this issue is address related, Somewhere in the firewall cache or the webfilter this address is not clearing.

I added static address on my own hunch and that solved the problem.
