Look for the file

C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

If you find it, rename it to hosts.txt and restart your PC.

It sounds it might be a left over from some nasty.

Try re-naming your hosts file, in Windows XP its located in
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

The hosts file has no extension to it, it you add old to the end like this hosts.old and try again. If that clears it let us know, if not just re-name it back to hosts again.
