    Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

    I get that error when I try to access YouTube, and a few other sites (which aren't really as important). I've searched up remedies and such, but I either can't understand what they're telling me to do, or I try what it tells me to and it doesn't work.

    Has anyone encountered this problem in the past and knows how to fix it?

    Notes: it only happens on my own PC. My grandpa's laptop, my PS3, and my brother's Wii can all connect to these sites fine.
    - It's not a browser based thing. It happens in IE and FF

    Make sure your hosts file isn't infected if you're using XP.

    Just try doing a dns flush if you can http://www.tech-faq.com/flush-dns.shtml

    Can't hurt either to do a tracert.

    Also are the other devices on the same router, and does the problem go away if you switch cables?

    My PC has a wireless router hooked up to it, for the various gaming shit and laptops in the house. The only thing directly connected (through a cable, that is) is my PC, though.

    I haven't tried switching cables.
