Refused certain web sites

OK, I can go to any web site want, except that when I try to connect to a web site called it says this site refused to connect, check proxy or firewall. So I called DELL, they did all kinds of things but still cant connect to this site(want to check my pension info). Now, when I turn the firewall on, I cannot connect to any site on the internet! I turn the firewall off, then I can connect to every site but

I am running windows 8.1 DELL PC Alienware 17". I have tried Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, SR Ware Iron and all the same thing. I am confused, anybody have an ideas? Thank you.

Clarification Request
Sounds like a firewall with maximum security.

While I don't think it's the firewall, I did encounter someone that had a firewall like that. They had selected Maximum Security which is all traffic blocked. I had to keep from smiling.

See this picture:

Are you sure it's .org?

Cannot get to site

I stopped the firewall, if I did not could not see anything on the internet lol! But when I did that it still would not allow me to go to every pc in the house (6) same thing. My friend said he could get on? NOW, 2 days ago, I turned on m pc and got a blank screen. So I tried everything I know, back up emergency boot disk, os disk, etc.... I am running Windows 8.1, on a Dell Alienware 17 with an ssd drive and reg HD. After about 4 hrs of messing around I did a new partition and installed the os system to that new drive letter. Re-installed bunch of stuff (still installing) lol, Still cannot get to that site!!!! Any ideas? Thanks

I tried it too - no go

it is either a bad address or there is a typo in the link, site could be down too. I got the same error message.
