    am trying to fix an old laptop for a friend and have just completed a windows xp fresh install.

    have not installed any AV/firewall yet no activated windows, as it will not fully connect to the web.
    it will ping google.com etc but will not allow browsing/activating/windows updates.

    have reset the tcp stack and winsock, any other easy fixes?

    maybe running an sfc /scan now?

    have updated to sp2 no difference and does it only cable lan and wifi.

    DHCP or static IP set?

    What info does netstat report?

    dhcp, netstat provides info that all connections established.

    Might be worth trying a static setting for arguments sake... are you sure the Windows XP firewall is not on?

    Try an different browser like Chrome?
    Are the DNS settings set correctly?
    Also is the Proxy under "Internet Options" blank?
