But still Firefox, etc works running at the same time as Avant fails to. Plus the websites load their standard HTML content - text/images - just not Flash or allowing file downloads. It's not as though I get completely blank pages - just certain parts fail.

Only 1 PC in my home. Only 1 ISP. The rebuilt PC adopted a new IP, I think, but still gets this issue. I do not believe this is ISP related.
- using an alternate DNS provider (I use OpenDNS
which has never let me down)
No idea how that works, not sure if my ISP supports it. Looks like running through a proxy to me, but still I don't think this is ISP related - I think its a software issue. Too much of a coincidence that only IE/Avant does this out of: IE/Avant, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, et al. I would suspect a net issue if all 4 major browsers did it - but just 1?

No router - direct broadband. The modem box is the latest model and works fine. They changed it about a year ago as the older model was faulty. I've had no problems until updating to Win 7. Never had this on XP. Again, this suggests a Win 7 conflict to me - especially as I've had to reinstall Win 7 and the problem has persisted.

New PC, new mobo manufacturer - probably does have new drivers, yet 2nd PC running with the exact same issue. The only 2 things that have not changed: Avant, Win 7.
