for the last month I noticed a very odd behavior in my browser: it would time out and not load random pages including many known websites (like microsoft.com and so on). Those same websites would be accessible though from other machines on my home network. Trying to find out why I tried the following steps: reinstalled chrome, firefox and safari; full scan of system with antivirus and two malware checkers as well as TDSSKiller, added OpenDNS and Google DNS servers. It was not until I looked at the DNS listing obtained from cmd/ipconfig all to check that the new DNS setting were operational that I noticed two strange servers at the top of the list of servers: 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206. Flush DNS would not get rid of them and a quick search revealed that they are connected to instances of DNS Hijack. Hope you guys can help me solve this.
