Fresh install, only Google working on the internet
I've recently had a couple of PCs that I've done a completely fresh install on, direct from the disk, not an image. On these machines, the internet works as far as Google but anything past Google just doesn't work. Google searches generate results, Google images works, Google maps works etc etc. but as soon as you click on a link or try to go to a site directly it just gets "stuck" loading. I logged the user (a different user on each PC) out and logged on as administrator and everything worked fine. This led me to believe it was possibly an issue with their profile so I recreated their profiles and the issue still remained. I installed Firefox and that works perfectly, which leads me to believe it's some kind of issue with IE. This particular user is happy to use Firefox but I'd still like to figure out what it is. Has anyone come across anything similar?
On a side note, my sister-in-law had the same issue on her PC at home but I fixed this by rebooting her router.
