Why do I keep getting this error message? I have Norton 360 and scan my system regularly. I also scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Super Anti-Spyware.

This host was blocked by OpenDNS in response to the Conficker virus, the Microsoft IE zero-day vulnerability, an equally serious vulnerability, or some other threat.

If you think this shouldn't be blocked, please email us at malware-block@opendns.com.

Please clear your DNS cache and try again, if that still doesn't work clear your browser cache too.
In the Run text box, type: ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter -

http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9668866 = Reset your Win7 Hosts File to Default - M/soft FixIt, just follow any directions -

Conficker virus - Download Spybot S&D Update and Scan (Check for Errors ) Click any ( + ) and then Fix Errors

Edit - Is this only one site, or a general problem ?

Flushdns did cure the problem. The following suggestion requires the creation of a restore point. Since my D: partition has been lost, I am hesitant to proceed. It will be necessary for me to restore my computer to its factory condition before I proceed. Since the original installation CD will not be available to me for another week, I will postpone following your direction. Thank you.

Nothing worked. I flushed the DNS cache and ran Sypybot S&D. What now?

you can try Google's Public DNS

Use your ISP primary dns address as your first dns entry
Secondary IP is 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4

https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/

I am using my secondary dns to google DNS
