Windows 7: My computer won't go to a specific web site.

My computer won't go to a specific web site.

I hope this is the best section to post this. I cannot go to The World's Most Advanced Business Jet Aircraft - Gulfstream with my desktop computer. My laptop will access it (its on same wireless network) and my wife's machine can access it (same network but not wireless). I've tried checking my host file, turning firewall off, using ie8 as well as firefox, safe mode with networking. turning ad blockers off. I have no idea what would be blocking it. The machine is set up pretty similar to my laptop, yet it won't get to the site like my laptop. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks!

UPDATE: This is strange. If I enable proxy through TOR, I have no problem getting to the website. If Proxy is disabled, I can't get there. Its almost like my ISP is blocking it but it works fine on my laptop. Can't figure this out.

When you disable your proxy, can you ping the website through command prompt?

Yeah I'm really thinking it has something to do with your antivirus. You might try uninstalling it and seeing if you can go to the page and then reinstalling it. I have had to do it before with AVG.

Is there a site specific alert you can create?
I know how to make a general alert in google alerts, but is there a way to make a site specific alert. Like, if for example, Footlocker.com starts selling a "Jordan" shoe. Is there a way to get an alert when only that site has a specific word come up on their site? If so, how? Thank
