    Seems easy to fix. Step one, make sure there isn't a static dns server on your pc that isn't what you expect. Step 2, flush your DNS cache with, ipconfig /flushing.

    Should be it.

    Start by d/l ing & doing as full system scan with Malwarebytes, d/l the free version, uncheck the "start free pro trial" box & let it scan. If it finds anything, check the box next to the item(s) & quarantine the item(s).

    After the scan, follow the directions on this tutorial:

    HI Borg 386 no go i think they did something directly to my modem going to try a modem swap with comcast think that might fix? its affecting another computer that was never ever on that site. so do you think a new modem would do it?

    Your modem should have a reset button in the back, that will erase everything & reset it fo it's default state. Use Google to find the procedure for your particular modem brand/model.

    You might also want to d/l Malwarebytes on a clean PC & then transfer it on the infected machine via Flash Drive.

    MY question is why would it also affect a pc that has never been on that chat site at all? my ISP had me check it last night and is doing the same thing. i did the reset on modem and nothing do you think they messed up my IP and DNS ?. could the virus affect another pc if it is one?. god i new i should never went to that random chat site but i had to be curious as all humans are.

    Multiple computers would be banned as they share the Comcast external IP that you have. That part doesn't surprise me.

    Check your routers DHCP setting to be sure your DNS is right there.

    Usually the modem/router is not the device infected, it's generally the clients.

    new modem fixed it got a new ip and all the works looks like i'm good to go, the guy said the must have infected the dns on the gateway itself. Would it be worth using Open DNS?

    Glad that got it sorted . I have no experience with OpenDNS, but someone in here probably does. And you can always do the research on Google to see what others think/rate it.
