I cant Access some Sites...

Its weird, but I can only access some sites. DVDTalk and google work but Paypal and Yahoo Mail dont. Does this sometimes happen or what? Its pretty confusing.

You need more detail on your problem if you would like some help. How exactly are you not able to access certain websites? Do you get an error? Blank page? Does a little elf crawl out from under your bed and slap you across the face when you try to access Yahoo Mail?

I get this:

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
Diagnose Connection Problems

More information

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.

For offline users

You can still view subscribed feeds and some recently viewed webpages.
To view subscribed feeds

Click the Favorites Center button , click Feeds, and then click the feed you want to view.

To view recently visited webpages (might not work on all pages)

Click Tools , and then click Work Offline.
Click the Favorites Center button , click History, and then click the page you want to view.

Who is your ISP?

Any changes on your system recently?

I'm assuming you have been able to access these sites previously?

if you are running a software firewall... norton, mcafee, zonealarm... rule it out by uninstalling...

sounds like basic system corruption to me... classic case really...

start>run>(clear out anything in the box) type 'cmd'(no quotes)>hit ok button...

this opens the command line AKA DOS...

type 'sfc /scannow'(no quotes) hit enter key... let the command run... if it prompts you with "in order for windows to run properly files must be copied to the DLL cache, please insert your microsoft windows XP CD" insert the CD... it will repair from the disc... this means you have SERIOUS OS corruption and much larger problems than browsing if you see the 'DLL cache' prompt... hopefully you won't see it and repairs will occur from the CAB files...

reboot...

then run a complete reset of all tcp/ip and socket management on the OS...

go to start>run... clear out sfc /scannow or anything in the text box... type 'cmd' (no quotes)... click ok... this will again open DOS, i mean the 'command line'

type... (no quotes)

'netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt' (enter)
'netsh winsock reset' (enter)

the first command if entered correctly gives NO feedback it simply moves to a new line...
the 'winsock' command if entered correctly... will tell you to reboot... with 'the socket manager catalogue was sucessfully reset plase restart the system'...

do so...

after reboot test browsing...
