Malware blocking antivirus websites, HELP!

Recommended Posts

Tarun: The software you provided took out some tracking cookies, but did not remove the infection.

Eldmannen: The hosts file located in the directory C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\ appears as follows:

# Copyright © 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.


# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.


# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should

# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.

# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one

# space.


# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual

# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.


# For example:


# rhino.acme.com # source server

# x.acme.com # x client host localhost

Is there another potential hosts file in a different location that is redirecting/blocking me?

Your help is appreciated.
