Have you rebooted your PC and router/ADSL equipment during this period? If not, I suggest you try that first.

I can access all the links fine so the chances are its local to you i.e. firewall / windows blocking.

If a reboot does not fix it, look to see if DNS is working properly by opening a dos box and using nslookup on each of the domains listed to make sure it returns an IP address.

c:> nslookup news.sky.com

I'm no expert, but as no-one else has responded yet. The following worked for me for a similar problem

Start=>Run
(then type)
ipconfig /flushdns

have done all flushed dns (though this has been happening for over a week) and USB modem & PC has been rebooted many times, all was working fine until a mega slow patch that happened about a week ago

Have also tried fixing my DNS rather than allowing it to be set automatically

and disabling my firewall

Good to know you found the problem. I was about to say it looks like something local from those first 2 tracerts (honest I was!)
