Hello all,

I tried a lot of what I saw in these forums, but I am still having an issue. I am running two computers on my network (a Mac and a PC). My old PC all of a sudden is having issues connecting to the internet.

When I tried to connect tonight, everything I entered into the address bar in IE7 just started a Google search. When I clicked on the link, I got a Server not Found error.

So, I intalled Firefox. No luck.

So, I followed the winsock and DNS flush instructions. No luck.

Everything is normal on our Mac, but the PC wont connect to any internet programs (web, iTunes, etc) even though the system is telling me that it has a "Very Good" connection the the internet.

I am running a firewall, but Firefox has permission. I also believe I have set-up a static IP address or, with the gateway as

Anyone have any suggestions, or am I doing a full system restore?
