Glad to hear that all is well now. That was due to virus or malware infections. All the scans that you did took care of it. They are free programs but do miracles.

Everything seems to be working fine. I don't think I'll mess with the DNS quite yet.
No need to change the DNS settings if everything is working well. Here's a general internet and network security article that I wrote, it's worth to read and a lot of good information to safeguard your computer for any malicious attacks in the future.

Again thank you so much. It's amazing such good software is out there and for FREE at that. I haven't had my own computer since 2005 or the internet in nearly that long. I wasn't so derp back then but after so long you forget a lot.

I bookmarked your link, I'll be checking it out. I'm sure I will learn some stuff.

Thanks again, guys. I really really appreciate the help. Now I can play Spore.
