What browser (and version #) are you using?

Are you seeing this page in a new window or a new tab (not applicable to IE)?

Does it only happen when entering a URL in the address bar, or does it also happen when selecting new tabs/pages from links or bookmarks?

You may need to enable viewing of hidden files and folders:

1. Click Start.
2. Click My Computer.
3. Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
4. Select the View Tab.
5. Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Show hidden files and folders.
6. Click Yes to confirm.
7. Uncheck the Hide file extensions for known file types.
8. Click OK.

Now look for the file:

C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

and rename it to hosts.old then restart your PC.
