unable to load certain pages

I am unable to load certain pages, particularly PC magazine pages. Whenever I try to load, at the bottom right of the taskbar it says `Looking up. ad.uk.doubleclick.net`. The green progress bar gets to about 90% complete and everything stops. I have tried to reload the page but just get to the same place. At the moment I am using an old steam driven PC which allows me access to the sites. The PC I have trouble with runs Windows XP home media edition 2005 and the browser is Firefox. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you solve it?

Download the file, extract hosts to c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc then restart your computer.
