Help, I have some webpages that just won't load...

I had a problem a few months back w/ a Trojan virus and since cleaning it off my system, I've had an issue loading this websit (dvdtalk.com) and techbargains.com. For some reason, when I click on those links, I get a bad gateway message (ie - the white screen that says the website may be down or unavailable). Is there something that I can do to restore access to these types of websites?

Have you tried to see if the problem occurs in Netscape or Mozilla?
This will isolate the problem if it has to do with I.E. or something else.

Try running ad-aware. some spyware DLLs out there will keep track of your favorite sites and will attempt to redirect you to their search engine when going to your most frequently visited sites like dvdtalk.

i've seen this happen at work with a coworker's computer...

just happened to me while trying to go here. it kept redirecting me to a search and saying there was an DNS error. I removed a file called msbb.exe (make sure to kill it first in Processes) and it finally let me back here.

I'd go with the browser thing. Try a different one.
