I have a Toshiba laptop running vista. I had the soldier defender virus, but running Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware seemd to get rid of it. I do a complete scan in safe mode and it comes up clean. I also run Spybot and that comes up clean.
I have run ATF-Cleaner.
However, when I try to access cetain sites, I get re-directed to various locations. I can't access Microsoft site, download.com, spybot's home or spywareblaster's home. If I try other sites like espn, there is no problem. So it seems to know when I want to go to a site with virus protections/updates and then re-directs me.
I also get times where it tells me I'm infected and wants me to buy the cleaner.
Response time is ok and the sites where it lets me through is ok.
I can't download microsoft patches, malware, spybot or spywareblaster updates as it either times out or re-directs.
I checked my host file and it is empty except for 127.0.0.1 localhost. I also checked my startup and nothing starts that looks suspicious.
What can I do?

I have resolved it. I pulled down the latest version of Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware and that took care of it.
