Do you administer all routers between the PCs and the server in question?

If not then are you certain that someone hasn't installed a broken transperant 

One time I was working for an ISP and suddenly we started having some weird 
web browsing errors.  It took about a day to realise that our "colleagues" 
who ran the routers had installed a transperant caching proxy without 
bothering to inform us.

The main symptom of a hostile proxy deployment is when groups of machines 
suddenly stop/start working in unison.
