Did you look for a Proxy Server? That's the most common malware modified setting.

Look at you internet connections settings and uncheck use a proxy for this connections if it is checked.

Also try booting in safe mode with networking and see if your browser works

Restart you machine and when it's about to start, tap F8, you will get several options, choose safe mode with networking.
