About a week ago, my wife complained that she couldn't check her hotmail from our house. I brushed it off and told her that their site must be down. Earlier in the day, after all, I was able to check my own hotmail account. That night, she was able to access her account from work. On the following day, she still couldn't access her hotmail account from home.
I started realizing there was a problem myself a day or two later when I couldn't get about 75% of the videos I tried to watch at YouTube to play.
The real kicker was last night when my little boy pointed to leaves on a tree and told me those were spinach leaves. I brought him inside and decided to pull up pictures of spinach at Google. To my dismay, I was able to look up spinach, but I am unable to access the page for images. The more I played with it, the more I realized I couldn't get to any images page for any search term at Google or many of the sites I frequently visit.
I get a timeout message, but only after about three minutes or so. It's crazy.
I deleted all of my Internet history, cache, temp files, etc. and flushed my DNS. I don't have any add-ons for IE7 so there was nothing to disable other than the usual java stuff, etc.
Do any of you have any idea why my browser won't let me access certain pages?
I haven't tried another browser yet so that will be another option for me tonight.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
