90% of the websites wont work

Hi folks,

i just installed windows 7 build 7068.winmain.090321-1322 and have this
wierd problem, 90% of the websites i try to visit wont work. all the google
services work, google, gmail, google maps etc, this forum works and some
other sites aswell. but websites like microsoft.com, digg.com, yahoo.com
and loads of others websites wont work, i dont even get a response when
i ping the websites.

i tried IE8 and Firefox 3.0 bot it makes no difference atall, tried another dns
server, but still no result ;_;

does someone know how to fix it ?

What do you use to connect to the internet? I'm using 7068 and the internet works like a charm.

Visit Conficker instant eye - chart and see if the link in there works - if you don't see all the images, you may be infected....

I have a ADSL2+ internet connection, using a Allied Data Copperjet 1616-2p modem.

sadly the "Instand eye" website seems to be one of the websites that doesn't want
to load ; ;

Safari can’t open the page “http://www.confickerworkinggroup.org...eyechart.html” because the server where this page is located isn’t responding.

Sounds like both of you have the conficker, the best solution would be to go to another computer and download a conficker removal tool, and email the tool to yourself.
Back on your email on the infected computer, and download the tool from your email to the infected computer.
Most importantly, rename the .EXE to "irrelevant".exe, as conficker will otherwise intervene.

Best to download it from a completely separate machine not on the same network as the one your infected machines are on, and to rename it *before attempting to copy it to the infected machines....
