Sorry i didn't know where to start this so i decided to do it here, i am running windows 8 pro 64 bit and i had a problem with Facebook in the past few months where it give me an error while trying to access it "The web page not available" on my browsers (mainly Chrome but i tried Explorer and Firefox and same problem exists) and lately i am having this with Google and Youtube (Although they work when i do it in incognito tab).

This is getting annoying now as it's restricting my browsing and i have no clue what can be causing this, please note that i can access these websites from any other computer or mobile on the same network.

Tried a lot of things already such as flushing DNS, spy bot search and destroy, deleting cookies etc...

Does the problem occur when you first turn on the machine? There have been many problems with machines not recovering from the auto sleep mode when idle for a length of time. (I turned it off in mine!) Otherwise best recourse is to use the Windows Refresh facility which will mean re-installing your personal software, but will leave your data intact. Just type 'Refresh' at the Start Screen.

It happens after start up and all day long.

Possibly some obscure security issue which is common to all three browsers, Can only think Firewall. Try restoring defaults in Windows Firewall?
