Cannot access some valid url's despite knowing they are valid

I have two computers, an ASUS with Windows XP & a HP with Windows XP sitting side by side. I just reinstalled Windows XP on the HP & it updated with hundreds of Microsoft updates. Now, when I try to access some sites with the HP computer, I get the "Oops! Firefox could not connect to..." message. No reason given why, my firewall is not blocking any sites & then I switch over to the other computer & access them right away. As a matter of interest, I also have Chrome & IE 6 installed & it does the same thing with them. Firewall is not blocking them, i fact have tried with firewall turned off. Any hints would be appreciated.

Do you have any errors in Device Manager?

1. Click Start>Run (Start>"Start search" in Vista and Win 7).

2. Type in (or copy and paste):

cmd /c ping google.com>%temp%\$.$&notepad %temp%\$.$

and press Enter.

3. Notepad will open.

4. Copy all text in Notepad ([Ctrl-A], then [Ctrl-C]), and then post it (paste = [Ctrl-V]) in your next reply.

==========================================================================================

Go Start>Run ("Start search" in Vista and Win 7), type in:
cmd
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista and Win 7).

At Command Prompt, paste this:
ipconfig /all>c:\ipconfig_all.txt&notepad c:\ipconfig_all.txt&exit
Hit Enter.

Copy and paste what you see in Notepad into a Reply here.

Your settings are fine and apparently, judging from "ping" results, you do have a connection.
Your 1st "ping" attempt showed some packet lost, but the second one was just fine.

What was the original reason for reinstalling Windows?
Is it desktop, or laptop?
Did you try to reinstall network driver?
See, if you have same issues in Safe Mode with Networking.

Thanks again for replying. I reinstalled the operating system because there was a nasty rootkit in it that I just could not get rid of. I intend to use this HP computer as my surfing computer so that my Asus is kept clean as my main work computer. It was bugging me that I could not access some sites since this was going to be my main surfing computer. I don't need to follow this anymore as I realize this is just one of these odd ball things that happen with computers & one day it too shall disappear

Thank You
