Hi all,

The malware people tell me that isn't the problem and my system is totally clean, so thought I would try here.

I can not load certain popular web pages, or at least parts of them. For example -

Loads - http://www.wikipedia.org/
Doesn't - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

Loads - http://www.google.co.uk/
Doesn't - http://images.google.co.uk/

Loads - http://www.youtube.co.uk/
Doesn't - http://www.youtube.com/

Loads - http://www.ebay.co.uk/
Doesn't - http://search.ebay.co.uk/
Doesn't - http://shop.ebay.co.uk/

Loads - http://www.ebay.com/
Doesn't - http://search.ebay.com/
Doesn't - http://shop.ebay.com/

Loads - http://www.live.com/
Doesn't - http://search.live.com/

It seems to be a sub domain thing on the whole, but that doesn't explain youtube.com, it also doesn't explain why i can access other sub domains. It could be an issue with search maybe? Which is why i assumed it was a malware issue

Some info -
I use firefox and IE, the issue is the same with both (failed to connect in FF, 404 in IE)
I can connect fine on a laptop and ipod on the same connection, so it isn't an ISP issue.
I have tried safe mode with networking, same result
If i go through a proxy, i can access these sites.
My system is clean per every checker out there and the malware forum here.

Thoughts? Are there any settings that can cause this specificly on one PC and for specific sites?
