    I noticed recently that in both safari and firefox I am unable to open certain sites that work on other computers. It immediately states that it cannot connect to the server. Examples are yahoo, youtube, and a forum on college confidential.com. I tried resetting safari, clearing the cache, and repairing the permissions but none of that seems to work. What would be the next step to trying to diagnose this issue?

    I do not have a problem with any of these sites. How are you connected to the internet? Is it the same way that the other computers you mention are connected?

    We are all connected the same way, through a college ethernet.
    EDIT: For what it is worth when running win xp through vmware fusion, I get the same error. My firewall is off. For what it is worth, I noticed this happening after a friend installed peer guardian on my computer. I don't have it running and I have restarted the computer multiple times but it still gives me this problem.
