    Certain websites don't load


    Hey guys,
    I have a really nasty problem which i really have no idea how to fix. When I start my computer (which is running win 8), yahoo messenger won't sign in, and certain websites won't load for me for about 10-15 minutes. So it's just for certain websites, and the yahoo messenger client. Skype and 90% of the websites load with no problems whatsoever. And it only happens after i turn on my machine, or after a restart. The problem persists no matter what browsers i use. When i ping those websites, I get replies from them, everything looks just fine, but they just won't load. After 10-15 minutes, they just fire up, all at once and i get no problems whatsoever. It's not a problem with the internet connection, as I got another windows running machine, an iPad, and my gf's Mac, and none of them are experiencing this issue. Plus, it also happens when i'm using any other network from a different location.
    Any ideas why this crap is happening to me?

    Update: i have flushed my dns, and have run antivirus solutions like dr. web, combofix and malwarebyes anti-malware, and still no joy. My windows updates are up to date...
    Do you need any other info for a diagnostic?

    Try using Google DNS 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4 or OpenDNS 208.67.222.222/208.67.220.220 and see if the problem persist?
