    Started happening just today, I think it is a virus.. and I am not skilled enough to deal with it.

    Windows live messenger is effected, does not connect
    Google chrome is effected, does not connect


    mozilla and IE8 are effected, they connect but 75% of the time going to a site it hangs and redirects me to an add site.

    windows media player is effected, does not connect.

    Must be because of static IP addresses in the host file. Open the host file with notepad, by right clicking on C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC\Hosts.sam file and selecting open from the menu. Find the static IP addresses and comment them out by adding # at the beginning of those lines that contain the IPs.
