    My computer recently stopped loading some websites.

    It started with my League of Legends launcher wouldn't load l3cdn.riotgames.com. Which I believe is required for updating the launcher itself. Now I am unable to properly load Facebook, Tomshardware.com, Help.microsoft.com and malwarebytes.org, (Furthermore Malware Bytes is unable to update, I suspect the problem is the same)

    However I did fix the problems with the League of Legendes launcher by forcing it to run through a different IP address in the hosts file.
    Naturally I figured that would also fix the rest of my problems with connecting to other websites. Which it didn't.

    I am able to go to all of the websites via. A VPN. Also we've got atleast 3 other computers in the household, using the same router that is not affected by the same problems.

    So far I have run AVG Free and Malware Bytes and removed any threats, without any luck.
