For a while now I have not been able to go to any search engine sites... google, bing, yahoo... all come up saying "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" so I ran a Spybot S&D test and it came up Microsoft.Windows.RedirectedHosts (207 files) and Fraud.windowsprotectionsuite (12 files)... I tried to have SB S&D fix it but it couldn't... any suggestions:

some notes: I am running Vista... I can navigate the web without issue (IE7Pro and Mozzilla) but can not conduct any searches from the sites mentioned above. have run Malwarebytes... Spy Bot S&D... AVG Virus scan...
