I have a laptop that i cannot access the internet through a browser. I am able to ping any website through ip address or web address.
Able to run win update but not update malwarebytes, hitman Pro, etc...
I have ran spyware and virus scans, little found, nothing major. I have reset browser settings in IE, fresh install of chrome. internet options doesn't use a proxy.

I half think firewall, but cannot find where issue is..
