Web and update not working but router, networking and WiFI ok

How can I reconnect an internet connection that is only disconnected from the web, Windows update, etc. but networking is working, net printing and backing up to the other drives are working. This is a win 7 sp1 drive connected via ethernet. My router and VOIP and WiFI phone and laptops are working perfectly. Other than recover my drive or reinstall an update what do I do. Jim

Looks like a security program or permissions are blocking access to the outside world.

I tried all that and a 5-6 hour reinstall upgrade solved it but it happened before and I want a quicker method. One person suggested using Norton. One problem I still have is an old avast "fragments" interfere with reinstall of avast or avg but mse install thru Windows Update only worked.
