Certain Websites Won't Load

I DL'd AOL's OpenRide a couple days ago and immediately noticed that certain websites won't load in any browser - OpenRide, Firefox, or IE7. In Firefox I get the message that the connection has timed out. IE7 says Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. Here are a few URLs that I have problems with.

http://www.boisegasp....com/index.aspx
http://www.quiltedno...ra.com/tradeup/
http://www.rvbookstore.com/
http://www.gp.com/cruisingwithcars/

I'd like to resolve this without uninstalling OpenRide if possible as I'm supposed to be testing the software for them but am unable contact their tech support. I assume the installation of OR changed something in my computer settings since these pages won't open in any browser. Thanks for any help!

Edited to add: I tried turning off ZoneAlarm and the pages still won't load.

Edited Again: I finally uninstalled OpenRide which didn't help. So I did System Restore to last week which didn't help either. Help me! :whistling:

You can try Safe Mode with network. If the problem persists in safe mode then you might look at the Hosts file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\ect (it opens with notepad) and see if the sites are in there with a loopback addy(127.0.0.1)

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, safe mode doesn't help.

I noticed that even certain ads don't load. The rest of the page will load and there'll be a box where the ad should be saying "connection timed out."

Update: Very odd, but my DSL died for several hours this afternoon, and when it came back the problem had resolved itself. Guess it could be a coincidence, but at this point it looks like the problem was with my ISP. Is that even possible?
