Internet Explorer and Chrome not working, but can ping and Firefox works.

Last Modified: 2016-04-01
I have been working on a Windows 7 ultimate 64 computer where I am having and issue with Internet Access.  Networking Icon show network Connection with Internet but IE and Chrome will not open any webpages.  IE gives me Page can't be displayed and Chrome give me "Site can't be reached" DNS address could not be found.  DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN.  
I can ping Google and other sites.
Firefox works
Windows updates works
This is what I have tried:
System Restore Failed completely
Full scans and cleaning with CCleaner, Malwarebytes, ADwcleaner, TDSSkiller, RogueKiller, Combofix
Uninstalled MSE security
Disabled Windows defender
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
Flushed DNS
Cleared HOSTS files
Set Static IP and DNS settings
Many other things that I don't even remember.
I am pretty sure it is a DNS problem but can't find a solution.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
