I have already searched this topic on this forum and looked at the replies. I am also very tech savvy but this has me stumped. I have already tried the following and please note I have an active working internet connection where other web based applications are working as expected:

1.) Tried releasing and renewing my IP, still have the issue.

2.) I have checked my TCP/IP settings and Obtain IP and DNS server addresses automatically are properly checked.

3.) I tried pinging google.com both by its name and ip address and was successful with decent response times, but still cannot view pages in my browser.

4.) Checked my router/modem settings and all is ok there, I even did a restore of factory settings just in case I made a change I didn't remember making and still have the issue (I have AT&T Uverse for my ISP so I have a Gateway 2wire modem and router all in one).

From trying the above I am thinking maybe I have contracted some type of malware that hijacked my browser, but before I go through all of that diagnosis, I wanted to check here first for any ideas. And if it is malware, what type of malware does this to browsers? What should I be looking for? Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

UPDATE: I completed ALL of the items in the Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide and while a few malware issues were found and deleted, none of them was causing my issues as I still cannot view web pages and some of the other web based applications now are no longer working.
