check the local box in question for viruses....

"I have added the host file entries for each server"  why did you do this?  This info should be handled by the DNS server, NOT the host files... this will cause you major headaches later.

Reading about the issue with other people, and this is what they did...  No viruses, I will run some other utilities to check.
