Per the title, I think I have a couple of things going on. First I'm getting random pop-ups for surveys. That's been going on for awhile now but Adblock Plus has been catching most of them, but not all.
The second thing which has just started is some random websites are being blocked... like yahoo.com, for instance comes up with "no site configured at this address"
I searched the web and saw posts around looking at the hosts file within windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts I looked at this file via notepad, but didn't see any sites being blocked.
I've done full scans with Ad-Aware Antivirus and Malware Bytes. There have been also a couple of recent java upgrades, but they appeared to be legit vs. some of the fakes out there.
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 - 64bit operating system
That's all I know. Where do we go from here?
Thank you in advance!
