    Hi,

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to come to for this. For the last few days, I have not been able to access amazon.co.uk or amazon.com. My housemate (who I'm on the same wireless network as) can access it on his computer, but when I try on mine, I just get redirected to my Sony Vaio google search page saying it can't find it. I've done three scans for viruses etc and got nothing. I've reinstalled IE7 and all that's changed now is that when I try and access amazon, it now comes up as Cannot display page, so it's not even redirecting me to the Sony Vaio google seach page anymore.

    I know amazon isn't down as my housemate can get it. Can anyone suggest what's wrong here? To me it's very bizarre and has never happened before.

    Tim.

    You appear to have been infected with something. The reason you can't get to those sites is they've been redirected to localhost. I see a bunch of AV sites directed there as well, that's a dead giveaway.

    Please post a HijackThis 2.00.2 Log in the Malware Removal & HijackThis Logs forum with a description of the problem, then the log.
