It may be a HOSTS file problem.
Look for a file named HOSTS (no extension, could be hidden) rename it

If you did not create the file, then you may have parasites, or you are
using a web accelerator program that would be causing this problem.

Get AdAware and SpyBot and run them both. Keep them up to date.

Do you mean using HOSTS is good or bad?

I have downloaded the hosts file mentioned on the link below and replaced my
earlier but still the problem.
