Are you using Spybot S&D
? If so, Spybot's immunization feature
, the "Global (Hosts)" profile typical adds about 15493 entries to the HOSTS file starting with 127.0.0.1.
Check the first line in your HOSTS file
. If there is no 127.0.0.1 localhost line in your HOSTS file at the very beginning, the local name resolution will look to the first immunization entry which probably is 127.0.0.1 007guard.com.
If you open the Hosts file, the note at the top and bottom will show the entries were inserted by Spybot:
