I don't know what's going on with my machine. I'll be visiting a site,
like CNN.com, and all of a sudden, I get a page not found screen with
"http:///" in the address bar. Before it'd go to the google search
page. It only seems to occur with IE and not with Mozilla Firefox. I
have done all the newest Windows updates, installed ZoneAlarm for
firewall purposes, run McAfee three times, used TrendMicro's HouseCall,
and everything, and yet it continues. I have gotten a detection message
from McAfee a couple of times for a p2p virus. Each time it says it's
been cleaned, but I'm still having problems. Anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance!

These symptoms are conistent with you being 0wn3d ("owned").

The safest advice and the quickest most reliable way to get back to a
known state is to backup your datafiles to CD, and completely
reinstall your system from original media, formating the drives.

Connect to the internet from behind a firewall and download all
windows updates and reinstall McAfee before you do anything further.

Any other method leaves open the question "did I really get
_every_ piece of malware off this machine?"
