A few days earlier i got a pop up from ESET NOD 32 saying that it had blocked a URL - protectyourpc-11.com/cgi-bin.. and an IP address ( i haven't noted it down ) I thought that the problem had been solved but , this message was repeatedly flashed . I was unable to update my anti virus program and Firefox had become extremely slow . I was also being redirected to different sites and shown messages from Google that certain sites that i opened could be harmful to my computer . These were in fact , sites that i frequent every day .

I downloaded the 15 day trial version of AVG 2011 which detected 2 threats . These were immediately removed . But this didn't solve the issue .

I was unable to access the internet now . Firefox flashed this message - http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/1179/virusy.png

I clicked on Troubleshooting Information under the Help Tab and saw this - http://img96.imageshack.us/img96/1613/virus2t.png

I saw something fishy under Modified Preferences and changed the settings to "No proxy" under the Advanced tab in Options . Since then the internet is working fine . But my computer has become very slow and hangs frequently .


My system config is as follows

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit , Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2140 @ 1.6GHz ,Intel 82945 Express Chipset Family , 2GB of DDR2 RAM
