Well if you are going to check that...by MarkTCheck the HOSTS file in one of these 3 directories:
Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98/ME = C:\WINDOWS
The file should NOT include an entry for anything other than localhost. Delete any other rows, these are attempts by spyware to redirect your machine to another site.
