I have been having issues with my netbook and laptop for about the last week. The trouble started with the netbook, and a day or two later, the same things started happening on the laptop. It started with random pop-ups and redirections such as google-analytics, epoclick, and clicksor. Some pages will load, then go to blank screen. Tried running malwarebytes and deleting cache, has not helped. The netbook was running thru an unauthorized DNS server, but I put it back to default (assign automatically). The big problem started tonight, on the netbook, I will be connected to the internet (email works and can update programs), but no web pages will load. With firefox, it keeps saying it is updating program, but then cannot finish and repeats the process without ever actually loading the program. Explorer will load, but keeps saying cannot display webpage. Sometimes it will change address bar to http:/// after entering a website.
I read that this could be an issue with a trojan with my router. I have a linksys router, and have reset and changed password, but it hasn't helped. The netbook is running XP and the laptop is running windows 7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
