Vista RC1 will not load some websites

Greetings

I am having some problems with some websites after I installed Vista RC1. The following websites load with no problems in the Windows XP Pro installation I have and on the same three browsers I tried it on. But on Vista, the pages load only the top navigation bar or just a part of the website, really slowly and then hang without loading the rest.

http://bink.nu

http://channel9.msdn.com/

http://start.com

http://windowsmarketplace.com

There are others. I have tried to load them in Firefox 2, Opera 9 and IE 7 and I get the same result. I was thinking that it had something to do with the Java, Shockwave or Flash plug ins, but I was able to load other websites in all three browsers that use them, and I have installed the latest version of each. So, that does not seems to be the problem.

Any help is appreciated.

I've installed RC1 today and just tried few of those pages and they're loading fast and correctly as they should..

Strange that you're having problems with only this sites. Have you change anything in Vista that could be related to this strange behaviour of browsers?

Nope. In fact, I tried things like turning off firewall, adding the three browsers top the allowed program list in the firewall settings, installed an anti virus so that all the lights in Security Center were green, ran the program as administrator, etc after I was getting the problems to see if it fixed it, but it did nothing. The problem persist.

I have tried everything as far as my knowledge permits, but I have been unable to fix it.

****, now I can guess and try to help you but you did everything I would try too..only, try to uninstall AV, just to see if this is the problem. When you gone berserk of trying to fix this, reinstall Vista B)

The only option then is to check the hosts file and verify you only have the loopback inserted. Try and ping the addresses and see if you can obtain a response from the sites.

Edit: Forgot you said you can access the sites fine on a non vista system.

I went to the device manager and clicked on "Update Driver" for the Network Adapter and it told me it is up to date.

Windows says it is a "SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter". Maybe there is something I must change? Or perhaps I need a new Ethernet card?

I just installed the drivers for the Ethernet Adapter from my XP installation, to see if it was a problem with the drivers Vista installed. Restarted and the problem persist.

The websites I listed, and a couple of others have never worked, either from a clean restart or when waking the computer from sleep, so hibernation does not seems to be the problem.

I am thinking that I may need to buy a new Ethernet card, it is strange tho, because the same card has no problem when used from XP.
