From my PC, I cannot connect to google.com - it times out. But I can connect to all other websites.
I tried tracert from the dos command prompt and get this:
C:\Documents and Settings\me>tracert google.com
Tracing route to google.com [18.104.22.168]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms 192.168.2.1
2 2 ms 1 ms 1 ms Wireless_Broadband_Router.home [192.168.1.1]
3 10 ms 7 ms 7 ms L100.NWRKNJ-VFTTP-94.verizon-gni.net [98.109.129
4 22.214.171.124 reports: Destination net unreachable.
How do I debug this?

Forgot to mention that this happens with both Internet Explorer and Firefox
I think this problem started when I tried to delete google chrome using add/remove programs from the control panel. My guess is that something got corrupted during the uninstall - perhaps the registry.
The \windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file looks good.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

This is a known issue with Chrome. Several registry keys are changed when Chrome installs, but not revised following the Chrome un-install. Use any search engine to find the keys (usually located in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes]). I found it easiest to simply copy the affected keys from another machine that never had Chrome installed.
