Sponsored Google links fail

Whenever I click on a sponsored link the link fails. The google name created is very long and returns a "IE explorer cannot display the webpage" message. If I type the url in it works ok..!
Any Ideas..?

I do use MVPS.orgs host file. Could this cause a problem? I notice if I use a site which uses Doubleclick it fails because of the hosts file entries.
