  2. Can you ping a public IP like 4.2.2.1? If yes, can you ping yahoo.com? Post back with the result of ipconfig /all.

    I have the same problem here. Able to ping google.com and public ip addresses
    but I'm not able to even access my router's interface or surf any websites.

    I was having this problem on my new PC which came preinstalled with
    Vista, where although everything previously worked and I still had
    internet connectivity, as shown by my still being able to refresh my
    DHCP information, change my DNS settings, and ping my router, suddenly
    DNS stopped resolving, not internet connections succeeded, and trying
    to bring a a browser window resulted in the popup:

    *www.microsoft.com is not set up to establish a connection on
    port "World Wide Web service (HTTP)" with this computer.*

    Well, I finally figured out the problem. I had recently installed
    Kapersky AntiVirus. Kapersky wasn't the problem though. The problem
    was that the the Dell computer came preinstalled with Norton Internet
    Security, and that program was causing conflicts. I removed it through
    Programs and Features on the Control Panel, and the problem went away.

    I hopes this information helps someone else suffering with this
    problem, as right now there is nothing else on Google out there with a
    solution.

    I'm still getting a lot of blue screens though, with symscan.exe.
    Probably just more unstable crapware from Symantec that Dell
    pre-installed. Hopefully, I'll figure it out before too long.

    Thanks, Subversive, for your reply. It was the hint I needed.
    friend's Dell laptop had a similar problem. In his case, the proble
    turned out to be that the firewall in PC-cillin was blocking al
    incoming traffic to IE. Firefox worked OK. Turning the firewall off o
    modifying PC-cillin to allow incoming traffic to IE fixed the proble
    immediately
