websites being redirected


Recommended Posts

Ok, I cleared about 2 dozen diff viruses and rogues off of a pc. Now when i try to acces malwarebytes.org i get an error page

If I try to ping it it resolves to I have checked the hosts and lmhosts, verified the dns and I can't find it.

I have searched the registry, I have searched the HDD using a hex editor that checks the contents of the files and I cannot figure out where these sites are being redirected.

I have scanned with MBAM and Rogueremover as well as several other apps.

I can't find the redirects. Its driving me NUTS!!

I have a user with the same problem. Anytime you try to go to any antivirus/spyware website (avg, malware, etc) you get a Can not connect to page error.

Pinging www.avg.com redirects to

I have ran malwarebytes in safe and normal mode. deleting the infections it finds but still this problem remains.

If I am in safe mode with networking I can get to the pages just fine as both administrator and the user. It is only when the user is logged in normally that the websites get redirected.

Other things I have done:

netsh ip reset

ipconfig /flushdns

reset IE to defaults (loaded chrome and it is blocked from that browser too)

checked the etc\hosts file

checked registry to make sure host file wasnt redirected to another file

turned off all startup options in msconfig

Any help is greatly appreciated.
