I have serious troubles with browsing :S

I have a new network with Cisco Linksys E1200 and a TP-LINK wireless adapter. My operation system is windows 7 ultimate 64bit. Nah my problem is, that when I type for example or then I get instead of that :S by the I get google 404 error... etc... So my http requests are redirected to wrong servers....

There is another computer on this network, and I can browse with that very well, so the problem is with this computer not with the network settings (I think).

My computer is sometimes freezing for a half sec or so... (Haha maybe the virus sending my passwords :D fantastic...)

I have Eset Smart Security and downloaded F-Secure scanner too, but they found nothing. Can anybody help me?

Have you changed your HOSTS file? It's located at %windir%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts – Canadian Luke Jan 5 '12 at 20:07
I have changed, but now I opened it, and there is a piece of ... created by adobe in that. Pff, I'll uninstall every adobe product, and try out after that, maybe it helps. Thanks. – inf3rno Jan 5 '12 at 20:13
Didn't help, but I found a similar topic: The TDSS Killer found a thread... I deleted and now it seems working... Btw I have the freezings yet, so there are more hidden trojans on my computer I think. I'll reinstall the full system soon... – inf3rno Jan 5 '12 at 21:40
That's what you get when you pirate... If you fixed it, make sure you put it in an answer and mark it as such – Canadian Luke Jan 5 '12 at 21:46
Thanks the help! ;-) – inf3rno Jan 5 '12 at 21:50
