Default Internet Problem (random pages don't load)

That's right, random pages don't load on my computer, regardless of web browser. I confirmed that this problem is only on my computer and is not linked to what network connection I use. My roommate can connect to all the sites no problem, and I can't connect to them even on other people's internet connections. I am on a mac, and I've tried both Firefox and Safari browsers. I called Comcast to make sure there is nothing wrong on their end. A list of sites that I know don't work on only my computer:


www.myspace.com
www.mozilla.com
www.midwest-edm.com
Yahoo's pop server
BBC/Mozilla RSS news feed

and no, not every website that begins with an M is broken, although that was a theory

So I'm thinking virus or something like that. I check internet settings, but they all seem correct. All other webpages work as normal.

HELP! what the **** is this?

Can you access those websites by IP address?

Can you ping them by IP?

Do you have a firewall installed?

Have you installed any software lately?

Are both you and your friend connected to the same router?

Sounds like it might be some type of spyware or something. I know one time I got something on my computer and it wouldn't let me access Microsoft's website. Try scaning for spyware or viruses.

ambiguity is right. ping any of the sites and then paste the address in the address field and see if you can access this way.

By the way:

www.myspace.com = 216.178.32.52
www.mozilla.com = 63.245.209.10
www.midwest-edm.com = 69.94.134.56
Yahoo pop server: 216.136.173.10

If you can ping them by ip, try pinging them by web address.

I figured it out. It was PeerGuardian's fault. The trick is to disable the filters before you exit the program. Apparently, just stopping the program isn't enough... *sigh*

but you should have heard how confused the Comcast guy was

Haha. I have peer guardian too, but it's never filtered those things out on my computer, which is why I didn't suggest it.

Were you filtering www.m* or something.

I'll filter you!

(somehow Peer Guardian found www.mozilla.com more offensive than www.microsoft.com)

It's because Mozilla is part of the OSI, and we know how M$ feels about Open Source.

Still boycott flash by macromedia(now adobe) as they still have failed to make an x86_64 version.
