Cannot use internet browsers with malicious website protection enabled.

It is exactly as the title states; I can download torrents, play online video games and other online activities however whenever I try to visit any website it simply wont load.

According to Google Chrome the DNS-lookup failed, but as I don't have any 3rd party software installed that's supposed to cause these problems I'm not sure what is causing this.


I'm using Windows 8.1 with the latest version of Avast (free) and Malwarebytes pro.

I've tried Internet Explorer as well but no avail.

Anyone has a clue what's going on here? If further details are required please let me know (with instructions on how to provide those if possible, I'm still adapting to W8).

It looks as if you have a Qualcomm Atheros Killer Network Card?


Have you tried disabling the setting for "Enable Bandwidth Control" in Killer Network Manager?

(There was a conflict with this application & MBAM 2.0.  I don't know if it has been fixed in version 2.0.3.)


Just a thought.
