Interesting problem I came across -

I can run linux and browse the internet fine.
In Windows, it instantly says the page cannot be loaded for a website like google.
I can ping google and type the ip in and it will work.

This makes me think that it is a DNS problem, and not hardware but software.
I've tried flushing it, repairing, disabling and enabling,

Is there any registry, or necessary windows startup for DNS that I might have compromised or deleted in the wake of removing malware recently? My computer is completely clean now except for this dns problem.

Hello KBhasin,

Got the the link below and download and run the winsock fix. You can save the file to disc or usb drive then run on the affected system.
