I'm not sure what is going on here. I can pull up some websites Yahoo, Google, Myspace, but others I can't. Example, for some reason I can't go to pof.com or weather.com at all! It comes up in IE8 as page can not be displayed. On Firefox it comes up as page timed out. I tried to ping it in cmd, and it just says timed out.
I have checked the firewall settings, the internet options settings, my virus protection settings, and there are no signs of any blocked sites. My antivirus program is showing there are no virus'. I'm not sure what to do at this point. It's just frustrating that I can go to some sites but not all sites.
Any suggestions?

1. Check if you are not using any proxies.
In Firefox open, Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Settings. Choose No Proxy
In IE, Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings. Uncheck Proxy Server

2. Scan your computer with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM).
Download MBAM from http://majorgeeks.com/Malwarebytes_Anti-Malware_d5756.html
Install it. Immediately after install update it and scan using Full Scan

It should not take so long.
It may be due to signal interference in your telephone line. I think you should check with your ISP and tell them that you are not able to use internet properly.
