avp.exe is your anti-virus solution, i've never heard of 007guard, but after a quick google, i think it's malware.
Deep scan your computer in safe mode with your anti virus application.

What are the contents of your host file?

(%windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) open with notepad.

It is possible to block connections to by adding the line

This of course compromises the security of the file as you have to open up permissions to edit it.
