    If firefox is doing it too then it must be a problem other than IE.

    Try resetting IE's settings to default maybe. Maybe your firewall.

    Yeah check your firewall. Also delete your host file

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc

    delete it. windows will generate another one. the host file is where you can map an ip to a particular domain. so if i had www.cnn.com linked to abc's ip then whenever i enter cnn.com it will take me to abc's site. If the ip is old/outdated then you get a page not found.

    Try disabling your firewall and see if you can access those sites or not afterwards.
