My laptop has been working great the past couple of days. But when I booted up my computer (today) and ran IE, Firefox, or Sarfari, it redirects to the following IP address:

208.67.222.222

I am able to see and join wireless networks, but it just keeps redirecting.

Computer details:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Verison 2002, Service Pack 3
HP/Compaq nw8440 laptop
Set to "Obatin an IP address automatically"
Set to "Obatin DNS server address automatically"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Also, here are the steps I tried:

1) Tried to repair Wireless Network Connection -- didn't work
2) Ran ipconfig -all (see below)
Noticed 2 DNS servers
3) Ran ipconfig /flushdns (didn't work)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ipconfig -all (results):
C:\>ipconfig -all

You said you done a DNS Flush did you do a stop and start afterwards if not do it in this order :

Open up your command prompt by right clicking on it and choose run as administrator :
Now type in the following command: ipconfig /flushdns > click enter
This usually clears up any issues that might be occurring. Note that with Firefox you should probably also close and reopen it, because Firefox has a DNS cache as well.
Open up an administrator mode command prompt again as above,
Now type in the following commands:
net stop dnscache > click enter
net start dnscache > click enter
Now just to make sure your DNS Service has started again open run type in services.msc >click enter
Scroll down to DNS Client and just check that it says " started automatic "

Try it like this see if this helps !

doinmeedin,

Thanks for helping. But, I did the steps in the order you provided, and it still redirects.

I think you may be better of doing a HJT save the log and post it to the appropriate thread, so the HJT log anylisers can take a look and give you some help there !

Hope you get sorted ! :thumbsup:

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/277220/ie-redirects-to-20867222222-opendns/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
