    MSN.com resolves to 65.55.206.228. I wonder if your ISP's DNS is a bit dodgy?

    What happens when you click on this link:

    That or a clogged browser cache. Unfortunately MSN.com doesn't allow ping or traceroute so my diagnostic kung-fu is limited.

    Open a command window and type:
    tracert msn.com

    The trace will go across several hops before printing nothing but asterisks and Request Timed Out messages. Can you please try that and paste the results you get before it turns to all asterisks? Should look something like this:
