I can get on Google.co.uk but can't open any other sites?


From one of the PC's here in the office when I open ie8 it loads google but I cannot logon to any other sites, all other PC's in the office work fine.  

Any ideas?

Can it access other network resources i.e. Network printers/server/network shares?
Will it let you search google, or does nothing else work apart from the home page?

Is the system windows xp/vista/7?
What antivirus/firewall product are you using?

I use AVG but firewall is turned off s is the windows firewall.

I can access printers etc on network.

I am using XP and when I get onto google and search it shows me results but when I click on one it times out after say 3 minutes of trying.
Are you going through a proxy server?  Have you checked DNS options i.e. can you ping the names of other websites such as www.bbc.co.uk?

It times out when I ping web sites.  There is no proxy server.
Ok can you ping which is www.bbc.co.uk?

request timed out
Try the following:

Reset all advanced settings within Internet Options
Update flash (use other pc to download)
Try a different web browser

If you cant ping the BBC ip address provided then you have problems with your network config or your default gateway.
Check your network config for the Network Card, are you using DHCP or static IP.
If its a static IP check the default gateway is the same as other PC's that work and try to PING the IP of the default gateway.
If its DHCP also check that it has a default gateway and check you can ping the Default gateway IP address.

To find out all your IP information open Command Prompt (Start > RUN > 'cmd' ok)
in the Command prompt window type: ipconfig /all
This will display the IP and default gateway details, for more help screen print and attach or copy and paste the results.
