This could be many little things, first thing to try is make sure that some spyware/virus hasn't changed internet options for proxy server or your hosts file.

For Internet explorer follow these steps :

1.Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.

2.Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.

3.Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

4.Click the Connections tab, and then click Lan Settings.

5.Make sure there is only a tick in Automatically detect settings only.

6.Close Internet Explorer, then try opening again.

If that doesn't work, try this :

1.Close any Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows that are currently open.

2.Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.

3.Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

4.Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.

5.Select the Delete personal settings check box if you would like to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, and InPrivate Filtering data.

6.In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.

7.When Internet Explorer finishes applying default settings, click Close, and then click OK.

8.Close Internet Explorer.
Your changes will take effect the next time you open Internet Explorer.

The hosts file should be located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and you should have something like this :

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost

Hope this helps, if not please post again and we'll try something else!

How do you know you have an internet connection when you can't open webpages? Is this on all web pages or just one? Do you have another computer on your network to try to conect?
