As I said there was a lot of temporary files - OTS is cleaning them whilst rebooting so give it a few minutes more

Before I read your message I pushed the reset button to restart the computer.  It had already been over 15 minutes and I thought the computer was stuck, for sure. Do you think everything was done that needed to be done?  
When the computer rebooted there was the fix log:

This was why it took a while  ;D

It appeared to be unable to reset your Host file

Download the HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager.
  • Unzip HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager to a convenient folder such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Click HostsXpert.exe to Run HostsXpert 3.7 - Hosts File Manager from its new home
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?"   in the upper right corner (If available).
  • Click Restore Microsoft's Hosts file and then click OK.
  • Click the X to exit the program.
  • Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

Could you now check for redirects in IE and Firefox please and let me know the result

When I try to run the program, it shuts down when I click on the Restore Microsoft's Host file.  I got the following error message:  Cannot create file c:\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\ETC\hosts

I clicked on it before I clicked on the Restore Microsoft Hosts file but there was no way to tell if it "took".  It was highlighted in red before I clicked it and it was still that way. It was on the left side, however.

This is how it should be.
Click on the upper left button until it looks like this.

When you start HostsXpert you should see on the right side something like this (maybe not the same content, but at least something).

I don't seem to be able to get the yellow background.  It's there when I click on it but as soon as I move the cursor, it reverts back.

Please go to PROFILE then Modify Profile then Forum Profile Information then select your country in Please select your country: then update your Signature: with information like my signature as this helps the helpers offer pertinent advice.

How do I reset the hosts file back to the default?

That's no help right now, and the MS will not work either here.

Here's the problem.  When I open HostsXpert I get the following warning: Your HOSTS file is marked as a "system file" and can NOT be manipulated. Press OK to remove the system file attributes, CANCEL to Quit.  ***HostsXpert will NOT reset these attributes***
I pressed OK and then got the following warning:  Your HOSTS file is marked as a "Hidden file" and can NOT be manipulated. etc.  I pressed OK and that's when the "Make Hosts Writable turns red and I can't change it.
