I'm new to this site, apologies if I've post in the wrong section!

I think I maybe infected with some kind of virus/malware as I have tried to go to AVG, Avast websites etc, but I am never able to do so:


Server not available:
Firefox can't find the server at free.avg.com. (similar happens in Internet explorer).

At first I tried clearing the cache, flushing dns but this had no effect. I then tried to access the sites from another computer and the sites loaded fine. I then downloaded the free software and transferred to the infected computer, but every time I try to run the .exe they suddenly stop running - with no warning or error message. This also happens in safe mode.

I managed to download hijackthis software while in safe mode and have run the scan and saved the log, but wanted to post here before resorting to that.

Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
