Recently, only within the last week, I am having issues with Google and Firefox. When I open Firefox, Malware Bytes pops up and says "IP Blocked - Type:Outgoing". When I do a search and click on a result, McAfee pops up with "Whoa are you sure you want to go there". I use the McAfee BACK and click again and it goes fine. I am NOT seeing the problem in IE. Interestingly, if I run "iGoogle" (www.google.com/ig) instead of using the https://www.google.com link I don't see the problem either.

I am running:

Windows 7
Firefox 14.0.1

None of the following detected a problem:

Hitman Pro

Rkill found NO issues

I ran SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and it found no problems.

I did NOT try combofix as most of the forums said not to do so until told to.

Any guidance would be appreciated.
