I still can't find out why my computer has suddenly stopped loading Wordpress-based blogs. All I know is that when it tries to load components from wp.com, which are part of the Wordpress package, it hangs. It's as if my firewall won't let them through - but there's no such setting in my firewall! Other computers in the house, using the same Internet connection, don't have the same problem - they can access Wordpress blogs just fine.
I've tried undoing the most recent Windows 7 automatic updates, but that hasn't solved the problem. The only alternative might be to step back my entire computer by a couple of weeks, to the last recovery point; but then I'd have to back up and restore other data, which is a pain.
Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this? It's driving me nuts! All suggestions welcome - as long as they're practical and not too painful!
