For about a week now I've been having a problem accessing MySpace.com and mail.yahoo.com from my one computer. I can pretty much rule out ISP problems (AT&T Yahoo DSL) right now because from my other computers using the same Internet connection (same router too) can all access these two sites without issue.
When I use my Windows XP Home computer to go to myspace.com, the home page 9 times out of 10 loads fine, but when I type in my correct user name and password, the page goes blank and at the bottom it says it's loading, but it never does. Now the wierd thing is when I say hit "refresh" or type in another URL to go to, I'll see the page load for a split second, but it isn't formatted correctly. However, I'm unable to get it to load correctly for that split second when I cannot use it anyway because it's already going to another page. In addition to that, if I login to MySpace.com and if I just leave it alone, the page will sometimes load (partially), but it is all distorted, out of place and basically unusable.
When I try to check my Yahoo mail (mail.yahoo.com) I can log in successfully and see my emails, but I cannot view them or delete them. It just loads and loads until it fails and just goes to a blank page.
I can visit/use both sites without problem on any other computer on my network. I'm pretty smart with computers, so I've already made sure nothing was in the HOSTS file, I deleted temp files/cookies/cache, tried disabling my Norton Internet Security 2006, and tried flushing my DNS cache via the command line. I've also done a system restore past the date when this started happening, but that didn't solve the problem.
My ping results for MySpace.com-

When I do a tracert to myspace.com or any website, it just times out and it doesn't return any results.
I can't think of what is causing this and I've done everything I know to try to fix it. Do any of you know a way to fix this? Thank you so much in advanced.
