Exclamation Blocked Sites?

Hi guys.

I have recently started getting an error saying that Facebook and Youtube are blocked, I am at home. I have tried using Chrome & Firefox but no difference. I have ran anti-virus and malware. I know my that others can get on to these sites.

How can I fix this!!

It is also refusing to connect to google or facebook without that message appearing, Just the normal Google Chrome cannot find this webpage error.

It's malware. Combo fix should have got it. But if it didn't you can run stinger.

Then go to eset and run their online scanner.
Free Online Virus Scanner | ESET

That's not a standard error page. You should have seen that when you first saw it.

Yeah I knew that but I wanted advice from others to see what it is. I am on the way to Port Arthur so the rest of the scans will be done tomorrow when I return.

So when I ran combo fix it took forever and I don't even think that it finished so I am going to run those two you listed now.

Combofix can take forever for 2 reasons: slower computer or its finding a lot of crap. You did let it run all the way through, right?

Well before I went away I ran it and never finished, So I left my pc on all night scanning with stinger that Seti said to run, The online scan refused to work because it thinks I am configured to use a proxy when I wasn't, I re ran combofix and it didn't take long and it fixed it.

Thanks guys for all your help.
