Hi

         I am sorry, but, I can not access either of these links.  Each time I try, it takes me to the home page of Google.  I am not sure what is going on with these links.  I did try to copy and page the URL and got the same result.  Strangely, this is not happening with other copy and paste links.  Just these two.

Also look in your HOSTS file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts)  and make sure there are no live entries in there.

John,

         There are 5 files within the etc subdirectory.  They are as follows:  1.  hosts  2. lmhosts.sam  3.  networks  4.  protocol and 5. services.   While this information is being reviewed, I will move on forward by running the utilities recommended by Ramin.  I will be back in touch :-)

           Thank you

You need only look in one file:  HOSTS  .  Don't (normally) worry about the rest.

Hello and Good Evening John and Ramin,

           Thank you very much for your excellent answers to my question.  I have to say this question is certainly answered.  On a side note, thank you Ramin for the links.  My laptop did have some infected files, folders, and registry entries in addition to corrupt processes running in the background.  The utilities did clear everything up and this laptop is running much smoother now.

            Thanks again.
