I'm not sure how long this has been going on (I can only assume a couple of days, when I "borrowed" a neighbor's wireless internet access), but I only found out today when I switched to a new company with a strict firewall. I attempt to access the internet using their network (wired AND wireless) and I am blocked because my computer has been redirected from their DNS server to the following IP address:

Norton antivirus finds nothing. A google websearch seems to think that this bears the hallmarks of a virus. Could anyone help me?

btw... I'm using vista 32-bit

Sorry im not really an expert in this sort of thing but I recommend you download (using a secure encrypted internet connection) MBAM from the site http://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-...4-10804572.html (100% safe) install it and then run an update. After that disconnect from the internet run a full system scan and post the log onto this topic. Hopefully it will kill any malware you have on your computer (that's if you have any). What I think might of happend is because you "borrow" your neighbours internet - im guessing it didn't have a password - someone could have potentially installed some crap onto your computer. I'll say this again im NOT an expert in this sort of stuff but yes the MBAM log will probably help a person who familiar with DNS related issues :thumbsup:
