Alright, I am attempting to view certain sites such as http://thoranime.org and http://www.bakabt.com and well for some reason my desktop cannot connect to these websites, yet my laptop can. ive tried firefox, chrome, and IE. ive also checked my hosts file in system32/drivers/etc and there is nothing udnerneath all the #'s, so idk what to do. any help would be appreciative.
I had the same problem for a couple of weeks - looked through loads and loads of articles and read lots of technical info - most of it useless. My fix, in the end was simple, my Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program had 'Website Blocking' checked. Unchecked and voila, everything back to normal. So simple that I never even thought to look at it. If you have a program like this then check it.
well tis just no firefox, or ie, or chrome, ive even tried downloading opera and still doesn;t work, I am also the administrator of my computer. and proxies seem to work o.o I was able to access both sites using one.
