    Make sure your Hosts file looks like this:

    You can check what your Hosts file looks like by opening Notepad (Run as Admin if you're on 7 or Vista), click "Open" and navigate to: C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\ect. Set the drop down menu of the "Open File" dialog box to "All Files". Open the file called "Hosts".

    Delete all extra lines under "127.0.0.1 localhost" (DO NOT DELETE THAT LINE) unless you know that the lines under it are suppose to be there.

    Redirects... browser hijacks... generally annoying internet behaviour... MALWARE! Have you considered keeping a commercial AntiVirus program?

    In any case, there are many free anti-malware programs that can help. I like Ad-Aware, although, like AVG, it's been getting a bit useless these days since many adware and malware are finding ways to avoid detection. I even found one the other day on a friend's laptop that had been signed by Microsoft (seemingly) that caused ad-related popups every half hour.
