Is that a work, school or home network?

If it works with the proxy, it's sounds like a DNS problem. From a command prompt, run ipconfig /all & post the output.

I would replace those with the ISP's servers.

I have things set to get ip address and dns server address automatically.
Should I set IP and dns manually like for static ip ?

Is Norton, Zone Alarm, McAfee or some other firewall or security software running?

There is only one more thing I can suggest. Boot to safe mode & try the sites again. If they load, there is a software conflict.

If they don't, I'm lost.

I just realized i didn't mention that this is 64 bit

I don't think that 64 bit makes a difference. If I think of anything else to try, I'll post again but I'm lost for now.
