MikroTik

Every time I open a web site I get a HTTP404 error, and whenI try another website it get the MikroTik log on page. I don't have a MikroTik router or anything to do with this hardware/software company.

The problem initially started that I couldn't browse the internet at ALL. I uninstalled Symantec and after doing that I was finally able to go to AVG and download the software. Now, the Mikrotik website is the only one that comes up.

I have both a hardwire and wireless connection. I've tried both. I'm out of ideas.

Any thoughts?
Thanks

bantunez--Why did you uninstall "Symantec"?  What do you mean by "Symantec"?  
What you report sounds like Browser Hijacking.
If you mean you had no antivirus/malware program installed until AFTER the problems started, use AVG (after getting the latest reference definitions) to run a scan.  Delete what is recommended.  Then install HiJackThis and post the log here.

P.S.  Are you using a Firewall?  Windows Firewall comes with Windows.  Look into Control Panel|Windows Firewall and see whether it is ON.

you might check the local hosts file (windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts or similar) and delete anything that you did not put there. some virii add lots of rubbish entries to the hosts file.
