    Ive just had a look at a friends PC that has the same problem, if you ping the site (from a working PC) and get the IP address it worked which suggests that the DNS isnt working properly, i didnt have much chance to look into it as he took it to another friend for a reinstall, but someone i spoke to mentioned it being possible spyware/malware,
