what is the error from cloudflare? if ping is resolving the IP to name - we can rule out DNS. what do you see when accessing via Firefox? can you perform tracert / traceroute to Is it possible to disable the Antivirus for the time of troubleshooting? Do you have any content filtering rules on your router? – mnmnc Nov 29 '12 at 8:34

DNS error also shown when i access from FF (Error from FF not cloudflare). I've disable all the antivirus, firewall but the problem still there. – Nam Phung Nov 29 '12 at 8:39
Then try removing google DNS server from your configuration and use the other one - preferably your ISP's DNS server - i believe any ISP provides one nowadays.. also ipconfig /flushdns might help.. – mnmnc Nov 29 '12 at 8:59
I have tried this also but it's not working. – Nam Phung Nov 29 '12 at 9:06

Remove all cookies and restart and check IE. If it is still working except other browser, check for firewall configuration settings. Disable all firewalls then check firefox or other browser.
