Help please! Internet Problem

yestrday i made a clean install of windows 7 build 7600.
My problem is very wierdly i can connect to the internet thru my wireless network no problem. I can surf most sites no problem. But the problem is all of the anti virus programs (kaspersky, nod32) spyware detectors(ad-aware, antisuperspyware) i tried, When they try to update their database, They can not connect. Also for windows update it can not connect. I tried turning of firewall, didnt help.(i dont have anything else other then windows standart firewall) I searched for viruses thinking maybe its kind of virus but nothing. How can i fix that its very annoying thanks.

i discovered something that maybe helpful to understand what the problem is.
When i ping those update server for example u20.eset.com
it doesnt resolv the ip instead it resolves as 127.0.0.1 and the answer comes from 127.0.0.1 from my own computer.

can you check your hosts file?
its in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc
it called "hosts"
open it with notepad (you are going to have to first open notepad with admin privileges and then open that file) and you should see a bunch of addresses...
delete them and that should allow you to update...
delete everthing after this part
Code:
 # localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
#	127.0.0.1       localhost
#	::1             localhost
