Exclamation Need some help

Ok guys, my Dads computer is pretty messed up. I have been working on it for a day now and Im still not able to get anywhere on it. I am able to ping out all I want but when I try to open a browser and view a webpage it just times out on me. I have started it in safe mode and ran spybot and AVG and they both come back clean. I have ran regscrub and it comes back clean. This has been a ongoing problem for a while now. It is really slow on the internet. But my computer and anyone else that usues the hot spot in the house is just fine. He using a wifi card and I just reinstalled the drivers with no dice still. Can anyone give me any suggestions, before I wipe this thing clean?
