Hi,

I have a problem with 2 computers getting to some websites

- www.dropbox.com
- www.mozilla.com

When going from IE 8 we are getting page cannot be displayed. Try from Firefox and it works and chrome it does not work.

I have cleared the cache etc... even the turn it off and on again :)

I have confirmed it can resolve from command prompt.

Using wireshark to check the traffic and it's coming up with a 301 moved permanently

Any ideas?

Try resetting Internet Explorer. Go to IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced and click on Reset. This takes IE back to default settings. It clears forms and passwords so be aware of that.

Do you have a proxy server moving traffic?  You say that wireshark cannot track properly/

If nothing is wrong, then (a) all should work and (b) wireshark should point to the network you want.

Look in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and see if there are entries in HOSTS. There should not be.

Now start scanning for viruses. Use Malwarebytes after scanning with your own application,

Wireshark should show you in the packets the IP addresses it is seeing in its route.

Use ping and nslookup from a working computer, then run the same commands on the broken computer.  Do they return the same results?

ping www.dropbox.com
nslookup www.dropbox.com

Open in new window

Do a TCP/IP Reset:

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator
Then  netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Restart the computer

If the machine is using a wireless connection, delete the wireless connection first and remake it after the TCP/IP Reset.

If nothing is wrong, all this will work. So when "nothing" works, look to operating system corruption.
