Can't access several web sites (google).

I am having trouble accessing certain web sites, but can access others without any problem.  When I try and access Google, or Yahoo, I get “this page cannot be displayed”.  I can access other sites, like Expert Exchange.

Having problem from multiple machines.  On my laptop, when connected to my home network, it doesn’t work.  When I connect the machine via a hotspot, it does.  

I have a dns server in my local network.  I tried changing  the preferred dns server on my local adaptor to 75.75.75.75, but no difference.  Also tried rebooting the machine, as well as dns server.

I can ping google.com fine.  If I access the IP address from my browser, it brings up google page.  I checked my host file for bad entries (there are none).

Seems like dns issue, but I don’t understand why changing the setting on my adaptor didn’t fix it. I also tried 8.8.8.8 (google public) as preferred dns.

My local DNS server is also an AD server.  I am also having issues with my VPN connection to office, so the AD server is having trouble synching.  Don’t know if related or not.

I really need to get google working so that I can perform searches.

The ipconfig /flushdns /registerdns did the trick.  Can now browse.
