    I have a vista ACER 57152.
    I can access internet via cmd line, windows updates, BUT all browsers are blocked by something...
    Tried restore points to over a year ago, installed new browsers, it seems all access to port 80 is blocked somewhere???
    to add a real hard varible, the computer was made in france and is in French. all network connection get a valid IP address, but IE, Firefox, and Google crome will not access the internet.
    Ran ComboFix, Malwarebytes, MS Security Essential and system is clean.

    Could be a mis-configured or corrupted non-Windows firewall or security suite. Do you have one?

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.
