OK lets do a few things here!
First ownload and run Malwarebytes.
Second lets check your host file
Go to computer->C:->Windows->System32->drivers->etc
Open the hosts file with notepad
It should only have in it, and maybe some text explaining how it works. There should not be any other IP addresses, if there are delete them and save.
If this does not fix the problem please contact me for further steps.

I checked my hosts file, and all was ok. I also checked my services, lmhosts, network and proptocol files, and all was ok there too.

I also updated my virus signature and scanned my PC, but no infections or issues.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks, Mark
