Windows 7: Can't Load Certain Websites

Can't Load Certain Websites

Hey guys. I have had my new computer for 2 weeks and already have run into a problem. Certain websites all of a sudden will not load in any browser. Some websites work fine, and my computer still seems to be very fast, however other sites will not load. Also certain photos in facebook and other sites will not load. I have no antivirus program or anything like that, and am not very tech savvy so I could use some help. Need to get this fixed ASAP as I work full time on my comp.

FIRST, BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE GET AN ANTIVIRUS AND MALWARE APP.

free ones include Microsoft security essentials, AVG, etc.

For malware get Malwarebytes or Super Anti Spyware, both free.


What sites dont load??

It is a ton of sites.

cnn.com
foxnews.com
msn.com

I just tried a few popular ones and not one worked. Many other sites do not work either.

What is a good antivirus software to get? I am willing to spend money. Need one that won't impact my computer speed too much.

I should note that sites dont load in Chrome, IE, or Firefox.

I couldn't agree more with ZZ - get your self a FREE anti-virus program installed immediately.

Try this : Microsoft Security Essentials

Install it, and then do a full scan of your entire PC.

Your problems may be as a result of no Security Protection.
That should be corrected immediately.
Then your other problem{s} could be addressed

Read about Microsoft Security Essentials.
It is free.
Download & install it.
Update the definitions & do a full system scan.

Anti-Malware, Virus, Spyware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

I would also recommend the free version of SuperAntiSpyWare.
As above -
Download & install it.
Update the definitions & do a full system scan.

Oh dear, you do have a problem.

You mentioned you don't have any anti-virus software so I suspect malware could be the culprit.

If you can, download Malwarebytes and run a full anti-virus scan in Safe Mode.

Microsoft Security Essentials is a freebie from Microsoft and well worth downloading.

I am using Microsoft Security Essentials. Should I do a scan with malwarebytes as well?
