Windows 7: can't access certain sites or updates

windows 7 64 bit

even tried it on my wifes laptop and the same thing. I get internet through a satelite disc and then wirelessly through a TP link router(wr841n). Its like I can't load too many txts like the reports earlier or too big pages.Won't let me download spybot either.

Let's see if flushing the DNS cache and restoring MS's Hosts file helps------

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click and choose to run as Administrator.

Reboot/restart the computer. Now, see if you can download AdwCleaner. It looks like AVG may have too many features running!
