Question: Hi, Approx 2 days ago I suddenly started getting either "cant connect to 'news.yahoo.com' and 'timeout to www.google.com. BUT, only these two URLs !!??!!. All other URLs/Websites seem to work fine. Many efforts later, i.e. checked for viruses, check settings in Norton Anti-Virus and Windows Firewall, searches on Interenet, turn Win Firewall off, turn Norton off, try IP addresses for both sites instead of characters, triple checking any unknown changes to the op/network system and, of course, failed attempts at System Restore (which has never worked for me). Still no access. These errors occur whether using Firefox (latest version) or Internet Explorer (weekly updates). Also, I checked with the ISP, Comcast, and they verify, after they take control of the modem that they can get through to both those URLs. Finally, the other 3 computers on my home network can access those so, at least, i have narrowed in down to my computer. Please advise, suggest, HELP!, THANK YOU! Yes, already deleted cookies, cache, temp internet files ... several times. Also, when I ping google.com from the command line, I get the same timeout message. Yes, already ran System Restore, no help.
