Don't know if i'm infected or not but I haven't been able to access any Google related pages on my comp for almost 2 weeks. I'm able to go to a proxy and access them on my comp but not directly from any browser(Firefox,IE,Opera,Safari). I've scanned with MBAM and got nothing, scanned with SAS and nothing came up, scanned with McAfee and got nothing. I was told i may have had my host file hijacked but I have no idea what that means. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Sorry didn't add that I did system restore as well and it didn't work. I've already run SAS.....

Could be an ISP problem? Have you checked with your ISP? What do they say? Some users with this problem can trace it back to their ISP, nothing wrong with their computer.

Another suggestion: I found an older bleeping computer thread with suggestions that have worked for some, check it out:
