Websites timing out... I'm lost

So, everything seems to be working well... except for the fact that i can't load like a fourth of the websites that i normally can... sites such as microsoft.com, hotmail.com, my EQ2 guild's website... intoabyss.us, roxio.com, and dozens of others.

I did a full system scan, didn't find any malware... hijackthis log doesn't show anything out of the ordinary Did a system restore and tried 2 new web browsers, but problems still persist.

I'm not behind a firewall... use zonealarm, but the problem still occurs when i shut it down. I cna post a hijackthis log if you guys think it would be beneficial, but i don't think it's any kind of malware. Any help that you guys could provide would be most appreciated.

oh yeah.... by using an anonymizing site or some other proxy server, i can connect to those websites just fine.

Hi there,

Since this is happening with more than one browser, try this.

Go to Start /Run /open=cmd. type in "ipconfig /flushdns" (no quotes) press Enter. you should get a message about sucessfully flushing the resolver cache. type in exit.

I generally disable th DNS Client service in Services(after flushing the cache) as most people don't need it and it can cause this issue.
