I recently got a new laptop. I'm not sure if this problem has always existed on it, or if it is new. However, I am noticing two things:
1. If I try to go to my bank's web site (www.peoples.com) it will not load. On Chrome it says ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED, on IE it says "The Page cannot be displayed" and on Firefox the tab spins as if it's loading but the page never comes up.
2. If I try to go to Staples Easy Rebates site, I get mixed results. (URL: https://rebate.staples.com/staples/tracksearch.action). On Chrome, I believe it errors out but the URL goes in a loop and tries to connect. If I look at the URL I believe it is trying to redirect to an error page. On IE I get the same issue. On Firefox, the page loads.
On other machines, these pages load fine. Thinking it could potentially be a router issue (bought a new router at a similar time), I brought this laptop to another location and had the same issues. I've also run Malwarebytes and Anti-virus, etc. At the moment, I don't suspect it to be that type of issue (but could be wrong).
I believe the network/internet settings are the original default settings. I didn't set any custom proxy servers or anything of the sort. I tried searching the issue before creating this post, but since my problem is unique (at least to the two sites mentioned above) I couldn't find similar situations. I'm at a loss at the moment as to what could be causing it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
