Everything points to me being able to access the Internet but still cannot bring up Web sites and PC troubleshooting finds nothing wrong!

Try running torrents, and check whether it gives speed or not..
Try running another OS like Ubuntu Linux, Get it from your friends internet connection or something!
Confirm that internet sharing is protected and switched off.
.
Still If problem persists then reply..

This was actually supposed to be my post, sorry about that.

When I came home today I realized that my computer had been turned off for some unknown reason. I have my computer on a grounded surge protector. The only problem is we have several things in the room that would react to a surge and give notification of one occurring and nothing from any of the other devices shows a surge.
Here is where I come to my issue. My computer says that I am connected to the Internet and I am on my homegroup, but whenever I try to go to any Web pages it says "unable to connect to the internet". I can access my media server on my PC from my gaming consoles and see my computer from my roommates computer. When looking at my Local Area Connection Status my IPv4 is set to Internet and shows activity being sent and received.
All diagnostic efforts that my computer tries have failed saying that it sees nothing wrong with my computer. Booting from safe mode does nothing. My antivirus still updates and seems to be connected and my network states I have "Internet access." My firewalls are not blocking any access either. I have tried rebooting, reseating and switching ports on all my connections to my router, modem and PC. I'm set up on a wired ether net connection without access to wifi from the computer. My roommates computer has access to the internet through an ether net connection and all our phones access the wifi along with the gaming consoles which are set up as hard line and wifi, and none have any problems. My drivers are up to date and I've reset to a previous restore point of a week ago. I have done the cmd prompt dump and refresh IP address and it gives me my valid IP. I have removed it from the network and re-added it back in with no results. I have made sure it was not my browser by trying Chrome, firefox, Opera and even explorer.
Am I dealing with a hardware failure or am I missing something because I am trying everything I can think of. I am just hoping I have overlooked something simple lol.
Thank you to anyone that can help! I will visit back daily for responses.

I suggested you to use Linux. The OS has no viruses, it doesn't provide bottleneck for the internet or any network transfers, it is free of cost and the best part, it can be installed on a pendrive or a CD.
.
This will ensure that the hardware has no problems that are providing bottlenecks!
And torrents will check whether you r browser is unable to get the speeds or your whole windows is unable to get speeds!
Troubleshooting is always done in parts so as to figure out which module is not functioning correctly !

Ok I have installed Linux onto a flash drive and got my computer running it. Through Linux I can access the internet and visit websites. So I must have another problem with my windows 7 OS then?

Try reinstalling lan and wireless driver by removing it completely. Also do a clean install of browsers again.
If problem persists reinstall windows !
