Connected to Internet, but unable to Browse

Got stuck in a problem and got the solution

One of the PCs in our office had a strange error
Its able to access shared files through network TCP/IP configuration is OK
Its possible to make VOIP calls, but at the same time unable to Browse using Internet Explorer/Firefox.

The browsing issue arises not continuously, sometimes it works, some time it doesnt

Fix for the same is to download and patch using the freeware

It saved my time to fix the issue
