Connection has timed out

I've recently installed Windows 7 and upgraded to Firefox 3.6.
I've tried it seems every fix suggested, from changing the Advanced Netword setting in Firefox (to Automaticcally detecting the Proxy settings) to changing the settings in Firefox about:config, but I still get a "The connection has timed out" message on one particular website that no-one else has any difficulty accessing, and one which I had previously been able to connect to, i.e. Cool Mini or Not.
I've even installed and run ParetoLogic's RegCure, which promises to cure all "The connection has timed out" problems, but didn't!!
BTW, my laptop is connected to the Internet via a wireless connection and BT Home Hub and I have Norton Internet Security 2009 installed. However, I have tried turning off all the settings in NIS and I still get the same problem.
There are two other PCs in the house, both connected via Ether LAN through the BT Home Hub to the net.
However, I cannot access this one website (Cool Mini or Not) from any of them!
Now I'm at my wits end and don't know what else I can do to fix this problem.
Has anyone got any other suggestions I could try, besides throwing my Laptop through the window?
Geoff :(
