Blocked from some websites

By mrm ·
I was able to go to any website I wanted, all the sudden one day I was not able to go to some (very few) websites including Hewlett Packard's website.
Any time I want to go to their site my browser looks as if is going there, but it just hangs until it says "Page not found".
It doesn't matter if I use Explorer or Netscape the result is the same.
I have to use another computer in order to go to those websites.
Does my computer has a cookie or something that impedis me from going to these websites?

Check DNS

Check your DNS and proxy settings. If they are different than the second mechine, change them.

Possibility !

Well its not the cookie, i mean why would HP or any other brand set a permanent cookie at a user not getting info on them? its the contrary, and besides, try using another Net Connection, probably its sometimes caused when the proxy server is very busy processing the sites and info for their users and displays a timeout or unreachable error or something. Or maybe your proxy server`s address mentioned is incorrect !
