It is a web proxy used to visit facebook, g mail and many other sites, commonly used by schools, universities etc.

Have you installed an add-on in your browser or downloaded a programme and inadvertently omitted to uncheck a box.

This is a link to the website.

Could someone else have installed this virtual browser for using sites such as Facebook?

Have you checked your add-ons in Internet Explorer to see if it is there. If it is then it can be uninstalled/disabled.

It may be that you have to go through the process of disabling each one in turn to find the culprit. This article may help.

click here you can remember when the trouble started you could restore your pc to a previous date.

Something else to check is the proxy server setting in Internet Explorer.

This article explains the steps.

No one has access to my pc,I only have one add on in internet explorer,ad block plus

The redirection of visited web sites started a few weeks back

Some days its a pain its impossible to get on some sites and other days everything's ok

Rather not use the restore feature for now as I aren't convinced its something on the pc

Did you have a look at the proxy settings on internet explorer as in the link I posted?

You may also find this article interesting - it explains what they are and tells you how to get rid of proxy servers in the same way as the posted link.

Perhaps well off subject, but if you have CCleaner, then check the 'start up', and see if the offending item is listed there. Just a thought though?.

Mart, following on from difarn's advice regarding proxy servers, click here to view your public IP address. When the page has loaded, click the "What my IP says about me" button and look at the "Country" and "Host Info ISP" details. Are those what you'd expect? Finally, go back one page and click the "Check for proxy" button. Let us know what you discover.
