After visiting China I was unable to access several web sites. The sites were accessed from the hotel but now the hotel web address is automatically inserted in front of the correct web site address and therefore it takes me to the hotel page.

For example: when I enter maktoob.yahoo.com it will re-appear as hxxp://www.ouyachina.com.cn/?ref=maktoob.yahoo.com and the hotel page will display. I have windows 7 and KIS 2011. I did not use firefox so it works ok. The problem is only with internet explorer. I tries scan, delete all cookies but the problem is stil here.

I apologize for asking the obvious, but have you run any anti-malware applications such as MBAM since you've been back?

I used Kaspersky internet security to scan but it did not find any problem.
