When I try to go to the Drudge Report, I get "this page can't be displayed". Other web pages load ok except I have found one more that I can not load-Texana Center. I went to "Is it down right now" site which says drudge is up and running. I have tried full refresh and also cleared temporary cache. I tried in internet explorer, fire fox, and chrome but all the same. I use google search but have tried other search engines. I have looked carefully at the address to sure it is correct-it is. I have run malwarebytes but  nothing changed. I have looked thru any new programs in the control panel that I have just installed and deleted. This problems has been going on a couple of days. Any help would be appreciated. This is my first post to this forum.

It could possibly be a problem at your ISP's end.  Try changing the DNS server to OpenDNS.  These are instructions on how to do it in Windows 7 - http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/how-to/setup-opendns-in-windows-7.html

 

EDIT to flush the DNS cache as mentioned in that article, open up an elevated command prompt (type cmd.exe and enter into the search box, then right click the result and choose "Run As Administrator") and type in the command "ipconfig /flushdns"

No problem :)  Sometimes ISP's DNS servers (the servers which convert 'friendly names' into IP addresses) can be unreliable and Open DNS is a good alternative.
