Several things to check........

It could be your anti-virus blocking them.

It could be add-on toolbars blocking them.

It could be the sites are down, or at least a portion of the internet backbone down so your request would be rerouted and times out before it gets to the site.

Have you tried a TRACERT to these sites when they appear to be blocked?

antivirus isn't blocking these sites,unable to ping them as well.However these sites are accessable under SAFEMODE W/ NETWORKING,but only under SAFEMODE.

Problem solved,Peerguardian was preventing access to these sites,simply closing it down solved the issue.

So disabling Peerguardian 'SOLVED' your problem ???...

Leaving your system exposed to whatever Peerguardian was protecting your system from!

I think you ought to evaluate your mindset a little closer.
