I have a new desktop running windows8 - worked fine for a couple of weeks but no has no working web browser as the DNS lookup does not work
I cannot browse to but can browse to
If I do an nslookup, it gives me the correct answer

I have disabled IPv6 but with no difference.
I have manually applied a static IP address and DNS ( but with no difference.
I have reset the IP stack and Winsock but again with no difference.

I am running other computers, Windows7 and 8 with no issues.  All are using DHCP with the same settings.

Any other ideas or suggestions?
