Just recently I am having problems with IE not letting me visit cetain websites. Sites like my local newspaper webpage, Photobucket, pages such as that. I ran Avast antivirus and Malwarebytes and nothing showed up there. If someone could help me with this problem, I'd greatly appreciate it - driving me crazy =)

Try running IE8 with add-ons disabled.

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No
Add-ons) to start IE8 without any add-ons. Try using the browser and see if
the same problem arises.

If the problem does not occur again, start IE8 normally, go to Tools (if the
menu bar does not appear, hit the Alt key on the keyboard) > Manage Add-ons.
Disable all the add-ons under 'Toolbars and Extensions'. Enable each add-on
one at each time and see if the problem occurs again. If it occurs again
after enabling an add-on, then you have the addon that was causing the problem .

You can also try deleting your browser history !
