Iím having a bit of a problem accessing websites on both Mozilla Firefox and IE. Some website addresses (though not all) are redirecting to a megaclick page (http://www.megaclick.com/notfound/?lg=en&type=dns&tbtype=megaup&q) and informing me that ďDNS Error - Server cannot be foundĒ. These are sites that I visit on a regular basis so I know that the site isnít the problem. I have the feeling that this is related to the megaupload toolbar that I installed (and then, finding it pointless and more trouble than it was worth, uninstalled). The uninstallation has not solved my problems and Iím at a bit of a loss as to what I do next.

Iím running on XP.

Iím also vaguely freaking out.

Cheers

let's run a scan with MBAM and see if the toolbar was malware

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Okay, that seems to have resolved my problems... is there anything I need to do by way of follow up? Might I anticipate some future troubles?

Okay, well massive thanks and, should you ever be in need of someone's first born child, let me know because I'm pretty sure I owe you one.
