Have you verified the unreachable sites are not in your HOSTS file or that your HOSTS file is not corrupt?

Hey Animal,
You were right on Buddy.
The problem was with my HOSTS File.
It was corrupt.
Also Thanks for that HOSTSMAN Utility you suggested.
You have put a smile on my face.

Once again, THANKS.
