W7 Ultimate/IE8 some sites not working
New to the forum but thought this was the best place to get help.
I currently have windows 7 ultimate which has been working prefectly since day 1 however I can't get some sites to work, 1 of which is www.cdcovers.cc and utorrent.com (second 1 I found on another forum so thought I would try and doesn't work for me either) now for him clearing the hosts file fixed it but it didn't for me.
If I ping the www.cdcovers.cc I get a general failure but if I ping it from an xp or vista machine on the same network I get a reply and the site works fine.
Trying the site on my machine just times out and get the usual google page saying oops.
These are things i've tried : -
Resetting router to defaults
Changing lan port on router
Reset IE8 to defaults
Create test user account on pc (didn't help)
Disabled IE addons
Cleared hosts file
Changed DNS servers on router (from isp) (tried 3 sets of numbers)
Tried accessing site via IP address (times out)
Is there anything else I could try to fix it as it's getting annoying now, had an issue with java not working on some sites but have reset the certificates under control panel-java which fixed that but can't seem to fix this issue.
I tried the proxify website to access the site above and it worked instantly so a little unsure.

Go into your Control Panel > Internet Options and check your "Security," "Privacy," "Content," "Connection," and "Advanced" options. If you don't know what they should be set to, then just reset them all back to the default. (This does not mean uncheck everything or delete anything. Just click on the reset buttons. If you don't see a reset button on the tab. Then skip that tab.) If you are connected via cable, DSL, then make sure your LAN settings are correct. In your "Security" settings, make sure that the site isn't listed as a restricted site.
Make sure you do not have a virus
Go to search type cmd, from an administrators account.
In cmd type this
You actually did most of the right things, yourself, per the opening post.
