Windows 7: Strange.

Strange.

Hi, I'm having this strange occurrence when browsing websites using Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Whenever I go to a website, it says 'Waiting for 202.78.98.4'. Whenever I click a link on Facebook, it really redirects me to that IP. Scanned using MSE, scanned using MBAM, scanned using ESET Online Scanner. No viruses found.

It sounds as if you have some sort of infection or your ISP is redirecting you to that IP. However, if it only happens with certain browsers then it's more than likely an infection.

I suggest that you perform FULL Diagnostic scans using the following programs until you find something.

MSE
Avast
Malwarebytes
Hitman
Super Anti Spyware

If you still can't find anything, you should probably back up all important data and perform a clean installation. Make sure that you thoroughly scan all files before importing back onto the clean installation.

Look at this.

Hi, frzwin7.

I suggest you contact your ISP and avoid warez sites such as the one in the posted screen copy.

The WHOIS details you posted above are from my ISP! So you mean this is normal?

Normal is it working.
My guess is that your ISP is failing to route your traffic. Your ISP could be down. Could be busy. Could be lazy.
But it doesnt sound like its a fault at your end.
Have you tried calling them, going to their website, and seeing if they are aware of any issues?

xarden may be right. It is also possible that the isp is blocking some websites. Try accessing one of the sites you are having trouble with through a proxy server.

Check your host file. Here is the original to compare it too. If it looks different cut and paste this one replacing all the text in your host file.

Code:
# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#      102.54.94.97     rhino.acme.com          # source server
#       38.25.63.10     x.acme.com              # x client host
# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1       localhost
# ::1             localhost
