I recently had the dreaded Facebook virus on my laptop - symptoms included redirecting to weird sites after google searches. I believe that has mostly been sorted out now. The sorting out process involved a number of scans using malwarebytes, SpybotS&D and Ad-Aware as well as reseting the router.

After resetting the router I have managed to get my laptop to connect to the network. Passwords are correct and signal strength is very good to excellent. However, I can now only access my online work email account, all other websites (google etc) won't open. I get the following when I try to open them:

I get this in bottom left corner of IE when I try to go to any websites res://C:\WINDOWS\system\xpsp3res.dil.dnserror.htm

or I get an error message along the lines of This page can not be displayed.
