Using IE or Firefox, enter 209.85.129.99 in the address bar. If that
gets you to Google, you may have a problem with your hosts file. See
this from MS-MVP Chuck:

Otherwise, you *may* have LSP/Winsock corruption, which frequently is
caused by malware or by removal of malware. The Winsock Fix application
you mentioned is one of several possible fixes for this. See this, also
from MS-MVP Chuck:

I suggest you read through the entire pages linked above before you
start randomly trying things.
