Windows 7: Why are some websites not accessible?

Why are some websites not accessible?

I have one computer and one laptop. All of a sudden the desktop cannot access and two other websites. The connection just times out. The laptop is able to access these websites - both are on the same network. Also, I restored an old backup when things were working just fine, and I am still not able to access the websites. What could be causing this? BTW, they are both set up the same with Win7-64

Might be nice to know which browser you use ?
Clean boot,
Click Start and type in the search box,
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,
See the links above my signature on how to take and upload screen shots here,

Microsoft Windows 10 Home Build 15036

An ipconfig /all would also help. From both machines, pls.

1. Get to an elevated command prompt
2. Type IPCONFIG /all
3. Post your results here.

You can also see if the sites work in Safe Mode with Networking (also possible confirmed with ThrashZone's suggestion of a clean start)

I have a cable modem and a WD N900 router. I plugged straight into the modem and everything worked fine. This meant that the problem was the router. I saved a config file, then put the router back to factory settings, then rebooted the router. Then I restored the backup config file and now the router works fine. The router is about 4 weeks old, so hope this is not a problematic router.

RAM not accessible???
Before I installed Windows 7, I had taken out my 2 GB RAM (coz my friend wanted it). Later on when I got it back, it says that there's 4GB RAM, but only 1.87 GB is usable. Even the BIOS shows 4 GB RAM. Can anybody help me out?
