    Hi -

    I hope this is the right place to ask... i'm going INSANE looking for a solution.

    I'm having trouble viewing two sites i visit daily, and my new domain. I keep getting the usual 'cannot find server or dns error' page - but i know others can view the sites fine.

    These worked fine until about 2 days ago. I can ping, but not browse.

    Is there anyone that can offer some help? I've cleared temp. files, caches, flushdns - etc ... still no luck.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I also did the hijack this log... if its any help. Maybe its a virus, but i have antivurus software...

    I looked at your hijack log and didn't see anything really wrong - others might.

    My next step would be to look for the HOSTS file. This doesn't take long and can provide you with some info. One should be in WINNT\system32\drivers\etc (on Win2k) and it should be the only one. If another one is present somewhere, it is a sign of problems. If your default hosts file location has been changed, it will not show on a hijack log (as happened to me). Pings can work, but the site you are redirected to just doesn't ...

    Next, I would try the standard Adaware and Spybot regimen, and then report back. If these draw a blank, maybe one of the big experts will chime in.
