Windows 7: Certain Websites Not Working

Certain Websites Not Working

Hello,

I am having a problem with certain websites not working. For example, no matter which browser I'm on (I have Opera, Chrome, Firefox and IE) I always get a "cannot open" error page when trying to open pages like Bing, Hotmail, and more importantly a website for an online class I'm taking (Aleks.com).

It used to be where I could get to the websites and it would run just fine, but then all of a sudden I would get the "cannot open" error page for one of them and I wouldn't be able to get to any of them until I restarted my computer. Now I'm not able to get the them at all even with a restart. Could I possibly have a bad plug-in which would be making it so the sites don't show? What else could be the problem?

Thanks,
Mike

You run an antivirus scan ?

I run an antivirus scan every week. This has been happening for awhile now.

I've just tried and had no problem with Aleks.com. Have you tried using the IP address 216.34.240.137 instead?
