alright, i think i know the cause of this, for starters i think its a virus (i bet u figured that one out), anyways i find it a bit hard to remember but run a search for all files and folders on your computer and search for "hosts" and there will be a few that show up now try opening these with notepad until u come to one which has a list of sites now remove those sites and click save, and you will be fine but to remove the virus i will recommend you to www.symantec.com I hope this helps man good luck.

alright this might not be a virus but some browser hijacking spyware, now any spyware program will fix this such as ad aware and spybot, u can locate ad aware at www.lavasoft.com, and spybot u could just do a google, good luck.

What exactly did u find it with and im not sure if AVG will do any good cause as i recall they stoped doing updates for the free version?, this is the anti virus i use www.bitdefender.com I think it is good so u moswell download it, update it, and run a full system scan and see if it finds anything.

it sounds like you had a few problems with viruses before to have gained this expertise
