I have an Acer Ferrari 4000 (AMD Turion 64 Mobile; Technology ML-37;880 MHz 1.00 GB of RAM) running MS Windows XP Pro Version 2002 SP3 which I have just reinstalled. Everything worked smoothly but the next day I could connect to my wireless router but none of my browsers worked (Opera, Firefox, IE), even though I can - curiously enough - still use the e-mail function of Opera. Skype works fine, I can ping normally and non-browser based software updates are also no problem.

I have tried basically all of the advice that I could find around here and elsewhere; Winsockfix did the trick a previous time when I had the same problem, but not this time; netsh winsock reset catalog; netsh int ip reset reset.log... all no use.

I have the following system software installed: Avast, Spybot, Glary Utilities, HD Tune, Registry Booster 2, SpeedupmyPC 2009 and Smart Defrag...

These are my IP settings:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ipconfig /all

Getting a little desperate after two full days of tinkering and rebooting with no result... Any suggestions very much appreciated!
