    I'm suddenly unable to access my most visited websites - namely AOL Mail, Facebook, and some of the blogs I visit most often. Everything else, even graphic-intensive sites, seem fine. My firewall is not blocking Firefox.

    System info:
    Advent
    Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz
    4.0GB RAM
    32-bit OS
    Vista Home Premium
    Service Pack 1

    This seems to be a problem with AOL's DNS servers as I have now seen 5 posts with this same issue and they are all from AOL users.

    Suggestions

    1) Get on the phone to AOL tech support

    2) Get a new ISP such as BT or Freedom2surf
