Windows 7: Can not access SOME web sites

Can not access SOME web sites

This is really strange. None of my browsers will load walmart.com or target.com on my laptop via my wireless connection at home. I can connect a Verizon MiFi and connect fine. 3 other computers using the same connection have no issues. Every other site I have tried connects with no issue. With these, I get no response. Not even a 404 error, just a white background in the browser. I have done the following:
ran anti-spyware
ran virus checks
ran malware checks
flushed DNS
reset modem and router
checked hosts file
ipconfig /release /renew

Any ideas?

Sometimes it is the fault of the website. To test, take computer, go to a place that has WI FI and test. If you still cannot access, then it is most likely the website.

I used a mifi from Verizon, which is a wireless connection. That worked fine. It is only my home network that is the issue. I even connected directly to the modem with no success. That should eliminate the router. With 3 other pcs on the same home network connecting to those sites and mine not, it doesn't make much sense. Especially since it is only if I go through the modem to access them.

No. Same result. Just a white background and no page
eventually it came back with "bad host name"

Firewall disabled?

Okay so you've reset router, checked hosts, tried different browsers, temporarily disabled firewall and confirmed that an image from the website will load but not the website itself.

Do you have any webrep plugins or ip adress blocking software?

Site is clean. Certificate doesn't match domain name. That shouldn't prevent you from accessing the site.
