Darn! I was really hoping your solution worked for me but no luck. I am still unable to access (times out)
www.equifax.com. Every other site that I try works as expected.
(Vista SP1 desktop fails: XP SP3 laptop works fine both through same router).

                I am unable to access www.equifax.com using my Vista Ultimate SP1
                system. Both IE7 and Firefox are unable to connect. I am running Norton
                Internet Security 2008. No other sites I have tried to access are blocked. I
                have checked for restricted sites in IE settings and have disabled all NIS
                protection. Parental controls are not turned on. I am able to access the site
                using two other systems on my network that are running XP SP2 with NIS
                2008. Any ideas what is blocking this site?


        I just fixed this problem. Since it appeared to be a proxy related issue I took a look at the
        netsh command.
        (remember − The internet options app showed that no proxy server was defined.)

        1. Start a command prompt running with administrator privileges.
        2. type netsh
        3. type winhttp
        4. type reset proxy
        5. type exit
        6. close the command window.

        Apparently something was corrupt but who knows what it was!
