Windows 7: Weird connection issue, cannot connect to YouTube and Facebook.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
 
 
Weird connection issue, cannot connect to YouTube and Facebook.

Using a Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN on HP dv8 running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (clean install) with all the latest updates and drivers.

For some weird reason I can connect to any other website but YouTube and Facebook. I can connect to YouTube after I run ipconfig /flushdns a few times but still not able to connect to Facebook.

After I restart the OS I am not able to connect to both YouTube or Facebook.

This is very weird, I have tired the solution in "Network Posting Tips" section and still not working.

I do not have any anti-virus or security suite running or installed on my system. I use scheduled image backups with Acronis.

I just noticed my DNS Server was changed to use a specific address instead of "Obtain DNS....automatically". Maybe some program I installed recently changed this but everything is working fine now.

Problem solved.
