    Welcome to PressF1. What OS are you running?

    Do you have any 3rd party firewall software installed? If so, disable it and see if you can get to the sites.

    Post a hijackthis log.

    Edit - Hmm ok.

    Which browser are you using? IE, Firefox..? Try clearing out the browser cache and go to www.adobe.com and update the flash player.

    Does Gmail even use Flash? I doubt it.

    i had the same problem.. something to do with the dns cache or something? my mate said to force an IP address change and after that, i could access the sites again. reset your IP by disconnecting and then reconnecting the modem.

    No, but I think Yahoo! might use it a bit. Worth a try. (I thought).
