I've been having a crazy problem that just recently started and has been stumping me for a couple of weeks now and I need some outside opinions to see if you can spot what I'm missing.
I have a Lenovo Ideacentre desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium with IE8
The problem is whenever I'm trying to access certain websites. For example Google and Yahoo are preset home tabs. Google opens just fine but Yahoo does not, I get "internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". I jump over to Chrome and both pages work fine. Another site I use, I get the same error but under the more information section it tells me I'm getting a 403 forbidden error. I can access that page too from Chrome but it doesn't function properly outside of IE. So it leads me to believe it's only an IE problem.
I would have just abandoned IE all together but the problem is that I have a couple webpages that require IE plus that wouldn't actually fix the problem. I've upgraded all the way to IE10 and walked it back to IE8 with no change. I've run CCleaner, Malwarebytes, RougeKiller, Kaspersky TDSS, and Hitman Pro to check for viruses or malware that would affect the browser. I thought maybe it was a problem with my ISP traffic but I can tracert the pages with complete connections and I've gone through some online tutorials for refreshing and fixing errors through the command prompt but that's not working either.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
