Windows 7: Some webpages load and others do not regardless of browser

Some webpages load and others do not regardless of browser

Some web pages load perfectly (like this one sevenforums.com) while others do not (harborfreight.com). The ones that don't work either timeout or load without images (see attached). I've run CCleaner, tried running a cmd prompt (sfc scannow), rebooted the router (Netgear R6300v1) and still no dice. Any ideas? Thanks for the help! Oh other devices on the network are fine and pages that do load do so quickly.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Try using Clean boot to remove unnecessary items from the Startup section,

Post which security you use,
Cheers.

Try expanding your cache size too !
Also, a run of R-Wipe & Clean (if you have it ..) is,strangely, far more effective than CCleaner's cleanup.

Reset your hosts file.

This can be done automatically via Microsoft Fix-it : http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9668866

Or you can follow the manual procedure : How can I reset the Hosts file back to the default?

This worked! Thanks to all for the quick replies and sorry for my slow response! I appreciate everyone's help but I defaulted to the Microsoft Fix-It option when I saw it. So what's a host file anyway?

So I tried the clean boot and reset the host files and the same issue remained. The Harbor Freight site loads the images now but other sites like Costco.com will not load at all. Any other suggestions?

Are you using any ad blockers in your browsers. Maybe as a test disable MS Security essentials then try

I disabled both MS Security Essentials and the one ad blocker I was running in Chrome and still no dice.
