    I recently got a new laptop pc, with windows vista on it.
    It was using my internet connection that is on my pc as the broadband internet modem is wireless, and all was working fine until yesterday.
    I'm not sure if I'm infected with something, or not, but I can't access certain websites, well one that I have found so far, and its one that I need to be able to access.
    I've tried restarting both computers, and tried leaving both off for a while, also tried turning off internet modem, and tried leaving it off too, I've done a DNS flush on my pc, but on the laptop it says it needs elevation so I'm not sure what to do.

    Pc is XP, laptop is Vista.

    I've already tried scanning the system for viruses and malware and spyware and everything comes back clean!
    I'm very confused, and rather frustrated as I need to be able to go on to the site.

    I hope someone can help me get this sorted.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I'm having a similar problem. I posted the details in someone else's thread titled "Weird browser problem, please help." There's safety in numbers. Strange that there are 3 of us now with this problem.
