If you launch Internet Explorer, and in the address type;

212.161.48.153

You should get PC Advisor appear!

Try renaming or deleting all of them.

I was trying to narrow down the possible problem you may have. You initially made no comment on e-mails, and only suggested you may have a problem with IE.

Sometimes, if the problem is NAT related, you can connect via a numerical address, but not a domain name; hence the question, but being as you appear to only be able to answer in sarcastic terms, I will not bother you further.
