I cant access facebook and youtube for a long period of time. Sometimes I may be able to get on for 5-10minutes but then it stops working. The error that appears on firefoxis "the connection has timed out"
My brother's laptop which is connected through a router is able to access these sites fine. None of the browsers i try work. (firefox, chrome, ie)

I read on yahoo answers someone who had a similar problem, and said that China blocks the websites that i just mentioned. China also blocks twitter, and i tried going on it and guess what? It didnt work either. They also mentioned something about DNS poisoning. (Not sure if I have that or not) However, in another forum, someone suspected that something is playing with my IP/DNS settings
I sort of suspect that the cause of this are a few Chinese video programs I downloaded. I uninstalled them all but the sites still do not work.

I've tried scanning the computer for anything that may have caused it, but nothing was found. I also tried flushing the dns but to no avail.

Any help or solutions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not very tech/computer-savvy, so mind putting it in terms that a beginner could understand. haha.
Thanks.
