Re: Web/HTTP access doesn't work, PING does

Sounds like she either got a DNS hijack in her browser...
Wouldn't Hijack This show that ? I did run that and see that I didn't mention it above. It came back clean (I could recognize pretty much every entry or the paths appeared legit). Can't access a website via IP address either...

...or the TCP stack itself is shot.

Try these three commands in a command prompt window and then reboot the system, see if it still does it:

1. ipconfig /flushdns
2. netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
3. netsh winsock reset
Doesn't the "Repair" option in the right-click menu of the network adapter do that ? I did try that already. Besides, as I said, PING works.

...that's why online scanners from Trend Micro and ESET exist. Use them.
Back to the original problem, the internet can't be accessed via a web browser.

The Network Adapter Repair option will not reset Winsock and there is a good chance the problem is Winsock corruption. With Winsock corruption ping may work but browsing may not.

I would suggest to go ahead with the Winsock reset.
