Hi hoping I'm posting in the right place and apologies from this n00b if it's the wrong area.

I cannot at present access or update windows or the malwarebyte sites from a pc plugged into my network (the sites can be accessed via a laptop), I've managed to get an update to avg and superantispyware which don't throw up any errors or issues at all. Malwarebyte from the latest install but without any updates hasn't thrown up any errors.

Further to this I have noticed when using both opera and firefox on rare occasions in the past 12 hours since I noticed this problem that the odd link from google is redirecting to other sites but upon a second click goes to the right site.

I've checked the hosts file and that seems to be in order.

I'm at a loss at what the next step should be and would appreciate any help.

Ok cheers for the help, anyway got it all sorted, seems that there was a dns changer in the registry so by running malwarebyte in safemode and doing a full scan having downloaded a manual update via another machine it picked up the errant entry.

disabling the system restore and then resetting the tcpip and then re enabling the system restore seemed to do the trick.
