I checked Spybot Search & Destroy and there is a section called Immunize. I suppose the thing to do is to click on "Undo" and see if that helps.


Nope, that didn't help either.


Installing the default host file did not help either.

Ouch!

1.  What about trying a different DNS service like ClearCloud DNS and see what happens?

2.  Did Malwarebytes Free or Hitman Pro Free or Norton Power Eraser Free find anything?

3.  Did an Avast Boot Scan set to Scan All Local Drives and set to for a Thorough scan find anything?

4.  How about you download Emsisoft HiJackFree and save a copy of the Log/Report here so we can see what processes, startup entries, etc are there in case some malware are something can be found in there by some Experts here?

5.  Did you try running your browsers in Incognito/Private/InPrivate Mode to see what happens?

6.  What Extensions/Add-ons are you using?

7.  Did you try going to your Adobe Flash Player Global Settings Manager and Clear/Delete any stored websites/flash cookies/etc in each category?

8.  Did you try downloading Secunia PSI and scanning your system to make sure that your most of your software is up-to-date and have most of your vulnerabilities patched?

9.  Did you e-mail/contact the Webmasters of those websites to see if they can see if they find anything unusual?

10. What firewall or firewalls are you using?

11. Is your Operating System up-to-date?

12.  Are you using a Wireless or a Wired Internet Connection?

13.  If you are using a Wireless Internet Connection, are you using Encryption and a Password?

14. Are you using a Router?

15. Is your Flash Player & Shockwave Player & Java & Silverlight up-to-date?

I would suggest uninstalling spybot and see what happen's then, there has been a few issue with it lately not getting along with avast.
