Pulling my hair with this one....

Win 7 Ultimate PC on a domain network.
Cannot access a certain website.

All other machines on domain can access it
I can access it plugged into same network on my laptop thats not on domain with DHCP

So problem is with this particular PC.

Tried in IE8, Firefox and Google Chrome - all no good

What i have tried:

Turn off Win Firewall
Turn off AV
Reset TCP/IP
Reset Winsock
Set Static IP/DNS etc
Set auto IP/DNS etc
Run scan with MBAM and CCleaner, im clean.

I cant ping the website from affected PC - General Failiure is what comes back

Anything else i can try?

Cheers

Check that the particular address isn't being blocked by the Hosts file:

C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\Hosts

It is a plain text file with no extension that can be opened with Notepad. If there's an entry for 127.0.0.1 followed by the site you want to access, delete the entry, save and exit from the file.

sorry should have already mentioned the hosts file is fine

also to note:

DNS is working as it resolves the url to an IP fine.

@Graham - No parental controls on machine. (Or not least that i am aware of and i am the only user)
Anything in particular you suggest to check?

Do a search on the PC for Parental Control. If it's not there, install it. Then make the site allowed for all ages.
