Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I've been having a problem with my pc (running Windows XP Pro) where sites that used to load, will now say "connecting to.." and eventually give a message that site cannot be loaded. I've tried disabling my firewall, connecting directly to cable modem (bypassing router), IE and Firefox - same problem. Computer is hard wired (not wireless) to router. Note that other computers on the same router do not have this problem. I've also tried a bootable Linux(Ubuntu) disk and all websites load correctly. I've tried entering the IP address of DNS servers, but no change.
Here's a partial list of sites that don't load:
-facebook.com (did until about two months ago)

The first thing I suspect is a malware infection (browser hijack).
Please try spybot and adaware.
Then get hijackthis and scan. Check for any funny looking entries and delete them.
Also, Go to tools, internet options, and delete browsing history (IE).
Go to tools, internet options ,connections, lan settings and make sure that nothing is checked.
please keep us posted.
